We Moved!

02 Aug

I am enjoying a pleasant Saturday afternoon on my in-law’s back porch in Carthage, MO. Yesterday morning my mom served us breakfast in Grand Rapids and last night slept in the Johnsons’ camper. We had an uneventful trip, but that’s a good thing. Shannon’s dad brought his trailer up and helped us load our belongings. Then my mom cooked us one last supper. The next morning we got up early mom fixed a delicious breakfast and we got on the road. We thought we were going to arrive late in Camdenton so it was a nice surprise to arrive at our apartment at New Tribes Missionary Training Center around 6:45 and discover that Shannon’s mom and siblings had come up to help us unload the trailer. Shannon walked into the apartment and saw her china hutch and looked at me to tell me someone had been there already and then they all jumped out and said “SURPRISE” and scared her half to death!

Twenty minutes later we had all our things in the apartment. We sat down and talked for a little while and then the Johnson’s headed home. Shannon’s dad was glad he didn’t have to drive any more. Shannon and I decided to get a bite to eat and grab a few more things from our car, and we too drove to the Johnson homestead. We were grateful to be able to sleep in after a couple of exhausting days!

    WOW! We spent the better part of the day before packing, loading, loading, loading, packing, wrapping glass, loading, whew, and to think it only took twenty minutes to unload? Any breakage? Guess you won’t know until you unpack and that will take, well, days maybe. We prayed for a safe trip and glad for your safe arrival. Todd does need to replace those trailer tires though. We’ll be praying for work for you (and me) and that classes go well for an expectant mother. We are proud of you both!
    Call/text any time. Keep in touch.
    Love Dad & Mom

    We will miss you both greatly!! We are so glad for the spring and summer you could spend up in Michigan. It was great getting to know Shannon better and having you both here. We are thankful you are both excited about following God’s leading for your lives. We’ll be praying for you–three!!

    Remember we are only a phone call away.
