|The face of determination|
I remember this moment so freshly in my mind. I had just stepped off the little plane with my two babies to our new home in Sudan and boy was I in for quite the journey that first year!
|We were only 26!|
|The boys helped unload our stuff from the plane|
|This was our home|
|Isaac was a month shy of turning 3 when we arrived and made friends right away with our little teammate.|
|A little boy's paradise|
|So thankful that one of our teammates was a nurse. Eli wasn't so thrilled!|
|All this work to make peanut butter!|
I was a young, new missionary, ready to do whatever needed to be done!
|We had to learn to watch out for all the critters|
|One of my favorite memories that first year: Eli made a paint brush out of hair from our pet donkey's tail.|
Our donkey Teddy was used to haul water from the river to our compound.
|This was their usual wardrobe|
|A church built on the top of a huge rock|
|My first Sudanese friend, Halima|
She owned a tea shop in the market
|Creative solutions for the hot days|
|Our shower - yes it was outside and roofless|
|My first garden: I was very proud of it.|
|Our team in 2007|
|All I can say is thank you Jesus for protecting us and blessing us from our first year through to our 12th!|
