That's right folks! David and I will be back in America on Dec. 6th!
There are several reasons we are coming home a little early...
1.) We want to be home for Christmas. My family that I don't get to see very often will be in Oklahoma this year and we want to be able to spend some time with them.
2.) We will have achieved all of the mission goals that we set for our trip by the end of this month and feel like we could do more good back in the states raising money for the people and projects here.
3.) David's grandfather has cancer and is in poor health and we want to be able to spend as much time with him as possible.
4.) We feel this is where God is leading us.
We talked and prayed about this for a while and finally decided that coming home early was the best decision for everyone. We let our families know about a week about a week and a half ago and they were just a little excited about us being home for the holidays.
We have gotten to do and see so much this past month and a half. This trip has opened our eyes and hearts to so many things and we are so grateful to be where we are. I can't even imagine what God has in store for us these last 6 six weeks in the Philippines!
