On the GO!

The story of our lives!! It's been a long time since we posted anything, but that is because we have been on the run and fellowshipping with good friends from all over the place. Jenna finished her last day of work on June 29th. It was a lot sadder than expected. The Lord has continued to provide for us and suppy all of our needs. We spent some really great time with friends since the beginning of the month. We left on July 3rd for our annual trip to ETOWAH, TN. This year we even got T-Shirts that claim there is no better place to be than in Etowah! For those of you who have missed out on this awesome place in our great land, it is located in between Chattnooga and Knoxville. We spent time with some of our best friends Shaun and Laura King and there two cuties, Nathan and Jackson. We also got to see Laura' s new shop. The Lord has allowed her to live out her dream of opening a bakery. Two years ago I was able to go to TN and help her with the opening. Since then she has bought a bigger shop and her business has grown to bigger than she could every imagine.

After TN, we headed up for a very long, I mean, VERY LONG, car ride to MD, we spent a few days there so that we could go to a friends wedding in Richmond, VA. When Jenna was in college, her house burned down. The Buss family allowed me to stay with them, and quickly became a second family to me. Their oldest son David was married to Sarah. We had such a good time. It really gave us a change to meet up with some of our friends from Angier, NC. (After we left NOBTS, Brent did an internship in Raleigh NC at a hospital as a Chaplain) We moved to Angier so that we could be near people we knew so the experience would not be so overwhelming. We lived 3 miles from the Buss family. It was an awesome 8 months for us. Here are few pics from the wedding.

Finally, after our long ride home again... we washed clothes, cleaned the house and one our best friends from seminary, Pete Lukoff came for the week to visit. He and Wrigley fell in love all over again!! While Pete was here, our good friends Malcolm and Dana Philips came to stay for a few days. They have been living in Brazil for the last few months. They are planning to move back again at the end of the summer. It was so great to spend time with them!! Although this has been a very busy time, it sure does make us appreciate the days when we were back in NOBTS!! While Pete and the Philips were here we played a lot of cards and had a lot of late night talks. Again, bringing us back to the good ole' days! Brent and I are planning a trip to New Orleans in August for a mission trip, and as and time gets closer, we get more excited. Brent is looking forward to fishing and spending time with people that we have not seen in a long time! NOBTS, the glory days! Although, when we were there, we could not wait to get out, but now that we are here, we miss being in school again with good friends all around us!
