Still moving forward...

We thought we'd take a minute to update those few who are looking at our blog before we head for distant shores. Sorry that it has been so long since we've checked in.

Since the last update, we spent a lot of our time down in SE Ohio and NE Kentucky. My (Kaleb's) Granny finished her battle with multiple myeloma about a week ago, and finally went Home for good. She was diagnosed about 3 months ago and degraded fairly quickly as her bones weakened and broke. However, she always kept a smile on her face during her final weeks. She truly was a blessing to everyone and will always define dignity, hospitality, and generosity in my mind. Her husband of 58 years now finds himself in a very lonely house, please keep him in your prayers. We were blessed to be able to serve her and the family over those past two weeks with our time off. We never would have imagined we would be in that situation with this time, but we're so glad that we were able to be there. She gave us so much, I just wish we could have given her back a little more. The time getting to know the rest of the KY family better will be forever treasured. Thanks so much to everyone that provided food, care, and time. It means the world to us.

The other few days off included the wedding of two wonderful people (Zach and Kristi) and a couple days relaxing at the house with Mom and Dad. In addition, we also said goodbye to another dear friend... Trucka.

Although our time with him was short. He will be missed. I sold him right out from under myself to a great guy, and I'm sure he'll treat him well. It's a blessing to not have to worry about selling him any longer.

The next few weeks have us in PA before moving towards the airport. We hope to see some of you around here. Please don't be bashful; just shoot us an e-mail, and we'll try to connect! Support is going well, much thanks to everyone who has donated and prayed for us. It makes all of this possible. We love you all, please let us know how we can help you out when we're in your respective areas.

Grace and peace.
