We have said more than a few times since beginning this "adventure," that if we had known all that lay before us, it would have been much harder to take the first step. How gracious our heavenly Father is to lead us one step at a time and to give us the "burdens" He has assigned for each day. It is exciting for us to look back and see how far we have come on the deputation journey and look forward as we begin this new year with eyes of faith to see what the Lord will do.
Our December journey took us 10,000 miles as we ventured across the Atlantic to northern Spain. This was the first time our children were able to see Spain and meet the people there the Lord has called us to serve.
