Time to go home

My time in Maine is almost over. I finally found a decently priced plane ticket, and even with the luggage and bus rides to the airport, I paid less than I would have flying direct. I have enjoyed spending time with my nieces, and getting to know my new nephew Landon. He is 7 mos. He had been scooting on his belly when I first came, but now he is crawling a little bit on his knees, and can almost push himself to a sitting position. The next time I see him, he will be walking and talking.

My niece Ruby graduated from K5. Time moves way too fast these days. I remember when she was little, and I would come from NYC to spend holidays with her. Elaina is two and you can definitely tell. She is so cute, that sometimes it's hard to get on to her.

Since arriving in the US, God has allowed churches and individuals to give towards my missions trips. I purchased my tickets for Nepal, now I need to work on details for China. I found out I have to purchase a ticket in and out before I can go. This means, that I will need to get a ticket that I can change if necessary because I may stay in China and teach English for one year.

Please continue to pray for my dad's health and my nephew Emmett's health.

Mini Vacation

Well, I have been in Maine for a week now, and I am loving spending time with my sister and her family. My newest nephew is so adorable! He is 7 months old, so he is the cute smiley stage as well as the crawling stage.

My niece, Ruby will graduate K5 this coming Sunday. I cannot believe how fast the time has gone since she was born. She loves to sing, and is a good helper for her mom.

Elaina is two, and that doesn't take long to find out. She is the testing stage. ;-) She is a sweet girl, and is always saying thank you when I do something for her.

I was able to give an update at 2nd Baptist Church Palermo, Maine where my brother-in-law is the pastor. I enjoy spending time with this church. Last Saturday, I was able to speak to a few of the ladies. God is beginning to use me in new ways.

I booked my ticket to Nepal. I will be there from at least January to April. Please pray as I wait for the people in China to contact me back regarding dates that I can go to help them.

Please pray also for me to find a cheap ticket home from Maine. I am trying to fly on June 20 from Portland, Maine to one of these cities, Joplin or Springfield, MO, Fayette, AR. I am needing a ticket under $300 including luggage.

Once I have my dates to China finalized, I will begin contacting new missionaries. Please pray that God will lead me to those whom He wants me to help.
