the team

we are exhausted and still a bit giddy as we recover from the week we just had with the short term team that came out from Faith Community church who came out for a week to teach English conversation and culture classes in a nearby neighborhood. The time spent with them was so good; they were the sort of short term team that every missionary dreams of - - they were prepared, flexible, excited about Spain and our ministry, loving and warm and humble with their students, and they were encouraging and generous (and much, much more!) to our family. We are so thankful for them and look forward to seeing the fruit of their efforts in our ministry in the future!

One of the team members (and a wonderful friend), Nicole, has stayed with us for an extra ten days; we are thriving on all the wonderful conversations and spirited card games that she provokes! We spent the day downtown with her today . . .

Hey Naomi
Sounds like tons of fun (and work). I was looking through your pictures last night, and enjoyed seeing them all-especially the one of your tummy! We are probably looking a lot alike these days...I am 12 weeks now, and some friends at church are betting on how many babies there will be...I think there's really only one, but I just have always gotten big fast.:)
