Paraguay!!! Here I Come!!!




Today we are packing. Tomorrow we drive to Miami and are going to see dear friends who also are "ex" missionaries from Venezuela. There are more of us every day, it seems. Wednesday we begin the "TRIP"!

It's not easy to get to Paraguay, you can't really just go to Paraguay. You have to layover , somewhere, Bolivia, Brazil, Argentina...then you can finish the trip to AsunciĆ³n. We leave Miami very early in the morning, arrive in Brazil in the afternoon, and get into Paraguay at nearly mid night.

But, we get to wake up Thursday morning to two beautiful grand daughters, one of whom we have never seen, and share Thanksgiving with them!!! A first for all of us!!!


This is to be our "survey trip" but ,I think I will be surveying the grand babies mostly!!!! My son in law seems to have figured it out already!!!



Can you tell I am excited?!?!?!?!?

RYC...kids learn early how to work the adult in charge, I'm sure that's where her complement came from, but I took it anyways!

What sweet-looking girls! Hope you all have a great time. How long will you be there?

I'm glad the situation with the detained couple worked out. I forwarded those posts to my pastor who passed them on to the e-mail prayer chain.
