I'm able to get on our church's computer for a few minutes, so I thought I'd say hello! We had a good flight(s) yesterday, or at least I enjoyed them. Wes and Andrew almost tossed their cookies coming into Denver; there was a bit of turbulence and their tummies were unhappy with that. We got into Ft. Worth a little after 3 PM, and one of the ladies from church was there with the church van to pick us up. We've seen many of our old friends and met a few new ones who have begun coming to church here since we left. Today, our pastor took the school kids to CiCi's Pizza to celebrate the end of school, and invited us to go along. There we saw several people we knew too! We lived here for 11 years, and in this part of town, we can almost count on seeing someone we used to know. Kids have sure grown a lot, let me tell you!
Samuel is having a great time! The juniors and seniors went out to eat with our pastor and his wife last night. He got to hang around with old friends and catch up a bit on their lives.
Can anybody say HOT????? Of course we knew how hot it is here, but my goodness! We are spoiled, for sure. I am enjoying the sunshine, though. We were going to stay in the mission house, but there is a retired couple in the church who have gone to Alaska to visit their children and grandchildren for the summer, and they have left their house for any missionaries to stay in during the summer. So we're staying there. Rhonda, I haven't seen Bro. Joe yet, but when I do, I'll be sure to tell him hello for you.
I also made a mistake about where Graham, TX is - it's 2 hours away, not 45 minutes! But it's not near Wichita Falls. Someone had asked about that (sorry I can't remember at the moment who that was). We'll be leaving in a couple of hours to go there for church. Since we just had pizza, we won't need to cook supper.
Enough rambling . . . I hope you're all having a good week. We are so thrilled to be here, but we sure do miss our folks in North Van (and the cooler temps too!). I'll hop back online when I can.
