The Great Adventure : Earl and Joan Do Nigeria!

What a delight it was to share our lives in Egbe with Mom and Dad for nine days.  At some moments I almost needed to pinch myself to realize, YES, they are in fact sitting in our house.  It was indeed a great adventure as they breathed, ate, smelled, worked, played, and felt their way through our life here.  They have heard the stories and seen the pictures- following along from afar.  However, now I pray they may truly grasp our hearts and vision. To have caught a glimpse into why their kids excitedly and tenaciously fled 6,000 miles away from them! For it is only through a common strength and reliance on Him, that we may together live this out.  Our entire families calling, from which puts us on opposite sides of the ocean!  Love you Mom and Dad!

Here are a few “snaps” from their time here!
