Serving the Lord and Living the Dream

Riane came home from her two months serving at IBLP in Chicago to prepare to leave for Taiwan to Teach English as a Second Language.

 
She just had two weeks at home. Enough to unpack, figure out what she might need and re-pack. We did get a lot into her two weeks.
 
 
The whole family went out to a county fair --
 
 
To serve at our church's fair ministry.

Amidst the fun, Riane was shopping and packing, and we were all making decisions big and small-- Do you need the Japanese Encephalitis shot? How much bug spray should you pack? Also, taking care of getting her teeth cleaned (NO we did not pull all 4 wisdom teeth the week before her flight!)

We made time for a family cook out:

 
 



And so . . .

The picture ...

The hugs ...

And she's gone.

The reports out of Taiwan have been amazing. We are so grateful for laptops, email and Skype!  She is loving her new life, enjoying her teammates and absolutely adored her first day of teaching.  Striking out on a Great Adventure with God is always so exciting. When you live by faith it doesn't matter where you are as long as you are Serving the Lord, you are Living the Dream.
