~We're Home~

Well...God DID help us!!! THANKS TONS for your prayers!! In the last 12 days we have packed up the whole house, moved it all across town and up 3 flights of stairs, set up and organized the new apartment, painted the inside and outside of the old house and cleaned it all up, and packed 16 suitcases to go to the USA etc. God and Kelly REALLY helped us to get it all done!! Up until 3 days before we were to travel we DID NOT HAVE OUR AIRPLANE TICKETS and were PRAYING HARD for God to send in the money!!! In the last 2 weeks we have had to pay 5 months rent. Since we weren't Colombians the owner of our new apt. wanted 3 months rent for the deposit, then we owed the first months rent on that new apt. and then we had to pay the last months rent on the old house too. WHEW! Well, On Friday, July 31st, God answered our prayers and sent in the money and helped us to find tickets we could afford. ALL PRAISE TO OUR HEAVENLY FATHER!!!
It was really HARD for our family to leave our dear Colombian friends!! There were lots of tears shed on both our part and theirs!!
God really helped us as we flew to Panama City, then to Houston, then to Cincinnati, Ohio. He even sent us an "angel" (man driving a cart) in the airport to help us get to our last airplane which would have left with out us, had it not been for our "angel" giving us a ride! Upon our arrival we were happy to see my dear parents, my sweet sister Laura and her family, and we were especially SURPRISED to see Phillip's brother Michael and family! Now, we are trying to organize all of our suitcases (some of them were full of treasures to store here) and trying to rest up before our Comargo camp starts this coming Monday! I'll try to post some pics soon. Thanks for your nice comments and prayers!! =)
