Mega Post

So as you can see I’ve been a bit behind.  I’m calling this the mega post.  Which means, it’s a catch up of a lot of things, get ready!  

We finished up our time in Kansas City and it was great to get to be there.  Typically Jordan and I have been in and out, so it was a nice change being there for a little over a week.  I loved hanging out with my mom and dad, who today are celebrating 30 years together!  I’m so lucky to have parents like them.  They’ve definitely modeled well what a good marriage should look like.  So Congrats Mom and Dad!  I love you guys!

I also got to hang out with a friend from high school, whom I’ve only seen now for the second time in like the past 8 or 9 years.  She’s always an inspiration, and one of those people who no matter how long the time passes, you just get along.  She took me out to her families farm where we stopped at this amazing place to get a burger and onion rings, watered the flowers and fed the birds, and just enjoyed the afternoon. 



We also got to hang out with some of my great friends from the good ole BBC days Jill and Kaleb.  They too are people you can always just pick right back up with.  There are many great memories shared with these two, and I hope to call them life long friends.  They’re always quick to talk about God and life, and it’s so good to have people to share such deep things with so easily and freely.  We met up with them at a place downtown called ChefBurger, but I opted for the NY Dog…and talk about sweet potato fries!  YUM! 

After my parents loaded us up with stuff, thanks again guys!!!, we headed to Springfield.  What an amazing week we had there.  We made lots of new missionary friends, and got to hang out with some of our old friends in town.  Erica and Nick, Jordan’s sister and brother in law, were so kind to let us stay with them all week.  What troopers they are!  We learned a ton that week, being in classes everyday and hearing from everyone in the missions office.  It was great to just have a realness with them, and hear first hand about their time on the mission field.  The week definitely got me pumped, and we’ve got a ton to put into practice.  We really got to know a couple going to Korea who were just a few years younger than us, Bill and Anna Walton.  They’re awesome, and we can’t wait to see them again.  It’s great connecting with people so quickly and deeply.  We miss them already.  And of course, we got to hang out with the Lyons.  One of my favorite families ever.  Their whole family is such a blessing to be around.  Here’s a bunch of us playing Cranium, and I don’t want to brag, but Erica, CoaCoa and I won!

Ok…so then it was back to Hutch for a few days and off to Denver.  Hang in there…I told you it was going to be long but this is the last part.  The drive out there was actually quite enjoyable.  I say actually, because I used to loathe I-70.  Jordan is good about making you see beauty in just about anything.  We tried to see the beauty of the world’s largest Prairie Dog, but it was $8 a person!  WHAT!?  But we did get to see a giant Van Gough painting.  We had a great time at the church in Denver on Sunday.  Jordan presented our field in Sunday School, preached in the morning and in the evening!  He did great.  They all thought he was quite the professor type.  They had him pegged!  We got along great with the people there, and had a wonderful time getting to know them.  We visited a few other pastors in the area, and had such a good time with them.  One in particular had us laughing for two hours straight…I like guys like that.  It was a great trip and I can’t wait to go back there again.  We also got to see some cool things in our down time.

Thanks for reading, or at least looking at the pictures.  I promise I’ll do better next time.  Until then…
