Our First Month Back

   Well friends we've had quite the time since we've been back in the states.  We've had a lot of laughs, some time with our children and parents, reconnected with a lot of people at our home church, Nappanee Missionary Church, and also other churches that we've either spoken at before or have had teams come to the Baby Centre.
   We are in the midst of traveling at the moment as we had a couple speaking engagements out of town.  Down to Tennessee, then to Alabama, then to Florida.
   So far on this trip we've been able to spend some time with some good friends, Jeff & Tascha Fyke.  Jeff & Tascha came to the Baby Centre to serve as VIA's for about 7 months in 2014.  We had a wonderful time with them and their little daughter Lizzie.  We were able to spend almost a week with them and also went to their church, Central Baptist Church of Bearden, where Dan got about five minutes to speak and gave the Benediction at both church services as well as spoke in two of the Sunday School classrooms.
   Then we got to go spend some time together with the Fyke's at a waterpark/resort for a few days.  It was a lot of fun and all of us had a great time!!

   Today we went to visit some friends at Covenant United Methodist Church in Alabama.  Covenant has sent multiple teams to Baby Centre.  We were privileged to be able to speak in all 3 of their services and are being treated to a big party this evening.
   It was great to reconnect with some of the past team members, as well as get to speak about our ministry and the Baby Centre for the first time in their church.
   Below are some photos from our speaking in the church services at Covenant UMC.

   We are off to Florida in the morning for a couple of days.  We are hoping to connect with a church down there as well.

   Oh, forgot to say that Hope is now a Pastor as she stands at the podium in a little country church.

   A huge thank you to Jeff & Tascha Fyke and also Libby Glasgow and her son Jamie for all their hospitality while we were staying with them.
