It was inevitable. At some point we figured it would hit. Homesickness.
It hit last night on the way home from the meeting. By the time we were “home” we had 3 sad little kiddos. So we all got into our pj’s, had some english muffins w/ peanut butter and sat down and talked about what we miss. I am glad that they all could tell us how they were feeling. And they were relieved to talk about it too.
Today everyone is feeling much better.
We all miss people and places and things back home. We have been away for nearly 3 weeks. The kids have done so great and this trip is a big deal. We are getting more and more familiar with our surroundings.
We are really interested in simplifying our life and living somewhere that will open new horizons for our family. That is not an easy decision -and it has not been made yet. This is going to be a family decision.
It sure is great to hear from friends back home. Thanks for all the comments on the blog. It’s so exciting to check email and see your messages. Thank you!!!
We are having a wonderful visit with the congregation in Ajijc, Jalisco. It is a bunch of lively brothers and sisters who have made changes in their life to be able to answer the call to serve where the need is great.
There are some kiddos that are great new buddies to our 3 kiddos. Brycen is coming over tomorrow to hang with Austin by the pool.
Today we went in service and for the first time in his life Austin was invited inside a home to sit at a table and have a long Bible discussion. He was so excited. He said “it was great!”. He was jumping up and down waiting to tell me. And then we munched on some yummy tacos Mikee picked up from a vendor on the side of the road.
We all had a nice morning. Mikee found 10 people home in 12 houses. I met 2 very interested people and now have 2 rv’s to look forward to. The people in the car group say it’s a sign that we must stay here in Ajijic. 😉
