This last Sunday we were so blessed to be able to be able to go in front of our church with the Duran's and get to tell a little about what we are doing in Peru in all three services. After we went up front we went to the altar to be prayed for. It was an overwhelming day. Overwhelming in a good way and in hard ways. I felt overwhelmed with the love and support we felt. I also felt overwhelmed at the thought of leaving our church family. They have been our family here with our families so far away. They have loved and supported us through our dating, our wedding, our marriage, our pregnancy and the birth of Kai. We dedicated Kai there and so many have been surrogate aunts, uncles, grandmas and grandpas to him. It is going to be hard to leave. BUT, it does make leaving so much sweeter knowing that we have a church families behind us, supporting us, and being our partners back home. It was one of those wonderfully exhausting days and one I left feeling amazingly blessed.
On top of the love, support and prayers they also took an offering which ended up covering the cost of our flights. Blessed. We are truly blessed. Thank you friends, thank you.
