Greetings from Colorado Springs, Colorado!! We arrived here last night after 9 days in Northern Colorado. We hadn't told Emily that we would be staying with her teacher from YWAM CDTS. So, needless to say, she was extremely surprised–speechless even–when we arrived here.
We spent New Year's weekend up in the mountains above Estes Park with about 45 other people. These are people who we get to hang with a couple of times each year, and absolutely love to be around. We spent two days with Mary Jean teaching us Walk Thru The Bible–Old Testament. Wow! What a rich time!! We followed the chronology of the Old Testament and gleaned many pearls of wisdom along the way.
Last week, we were privileged to spend time with my Aunt, Uncle and Step-Mom. It was a short visit, but it was a wonderful time!! My aunt arranged for us to visit the Museum of Discovery in Fort Collins, Colorado. We had a wonderful time! So many things about which to learn.
This past Sunday, we were with the River Community Church in Lyons, Colorado. Stephanie played keyboard while I talked about the Emmaus Road and weaved stories from Central Asia throughout. If you are ever in Northern Colorado, and need a church to attend, I highly recommend you visit River Community. Wonderful people!
Yesterday, we were in meetings most of the afternoon talking through our upcoming trip to Central Asia. We were also able to see several friends.
Today, we head further south to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and then later this week we head on to El Paso, Texas where we will be with Rev. Neal Locke and his family. On Sunday, we will be honored of worship with them at First Presbyterian Church, El Paso.
One last thing, we have booked our tickets to Central Asia. If you would like to help us cover this expense (or our other expenses), then jump over to the Partner-With-Us page.
