Back Home in Africa

Hi everyone,

It's been a LONG time since we've updated this poor blog. Hopefully we'll do a little better now that we're back in Africa.

Our trip back home went fairly well inspite of being VERY long. We flew from JFK to London Heathrow where we had an 11 hour layover. Then we flew from there to Johannesburg. After going through immigration and customs, we flew on to Bloemfontein where Aunt Hessie van der Merwe picked us up. It was really nice to spend the weekend with them on the farm before going back to Lesotho on Monday.

Since we've got home we've mainly been unpacking, putting away, and working on immigration. As you think of us, please pray that we'll be able to get our permanent residence permits for Lesotho in the next few months. Before we get the permits, we have to have a background police check done by the Lesotho police which takes several months. Hopefully once that's done we'll have the permits in another 2-3 months. At least we were able to get 6-months "permit pending" stamps in our passports.

Kaitlyn and Kristell have been enjoying playing outside and of course Kaitlyn is having a great time with Thabiso. Kristell is getting to know our friends at Matukeng, but she's still a little shy. Her main things right now are eating carrots and swinging. I'm supposed to preach at Matukeng this Sunday.

I'm sorry that I don't have any current pictures to post. I forgot to download them from the camera last night. I'll try to post some again, maybe still this weekend???

This picture is during Seabreeze Campmeeting at Hobe Sound.
