So yes we are back from Greece and we had a wonderful trip.  First we’d like to thank the Lord and all of our supporters for giving us the wonderful opportunity to go abroad for 5 weeks to learn more about the Lord and Greek culture.  We had the pleasure of meeting many college students while we were there and learning about their culture, education, language, and religion.  We continue to pray for them daily and trust that the Lord is faithful.

“…for the Lord will go before you, the God of Israel will be your rear guard.” Isaiah 52:12b

Please join in praying with us for our friends Leonidas, Petros, Dimitra, Augousta, Labros, and George.  We became very close to these people and count them as our friends.  Tyler and I were very sad to leave them. Here are a few pictures from our trip:

And two pictures of us at Corinth and Ephesus

And now that we’re home we have just 17 days ’til we get hitched, and we’re really excited!  We came home and a bunch of stuff had been planned… our honeymoon was booked, our bachelor and bachelorette parties were planned, and so was our wedding shower.  It’s been a whirlwind but we’re really excited about sealing the deal in 17 days and can’t believe it’s gone by so quickly!  We can’t to celebrate with all of our friends OR honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico!!!  We’ll update soon but we will sign out with a few of our engagement photos!!!
