heading to Holland

Hello All-

Today we are beginning the trek home. None of us are ready to leave although I am looking forward to sleeping in my own bed! I also will not miss the roosters crowing at 3:00 am.

Thursday of this week Eric and I each took extensive quiet time to be with the Lord in order to discern if Saltillo is the place for us. We each walked away knowing that Saltillo is not to be our new home. It would be easy to live here with the connections we have made and the American base of support. Saltillo has Sam's club and Wal-mart, all the fast food chains, Home Depot, and 2 large malls. Essentially, except for the language and color/height of the people, you could be in any large American city.

With the bio-sand filter model it is evident that the villages surrounding the city would benefit, but only if the filters are given away. In our case the filters were given away with the idea that eventually a local Christian would be able to create a business building filters. At $25.00 (cost in Saltillo - other countries can make them cheaper)per filter the villages cannot afford the filters and the people who live in town do not need them.

We still know that the Lord has called us to be missionaries and are looking forward to meeting with Living Water International to see what is in store.

Yesterday we painted at a park with the group from Christ Memorial Church. In the evening we attended our third birthday party since arriving. We arrived at 6:00 and dinner was served at 9:00. We left at 10:00 as more people were arriving.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support. We would appreciate your prayers as we meet with LWI on Monday at 2:00 EST.

Looking forward to seeing ya' all when we return!
