Where's Jeff?

Many of you have asked where Jeff has been.

Well here's the story.

Jeff and I were here in the Philippines for General Conference in February. We were here to try and find a place to live for our family and then planned on coming back in a few months to stay. Well, little did I know I would be returning 2 weeks later with Melani and Kendra. My friend Melani was asked to speak at a Ladies Conference in Iloilo City. To make a long story short, I just couldn't let them come here all by themselves. I just had to come with them. So I did. That was on March 10th. We travelled to Manila, Bacolod, Iloilo and back to Manila where we met Jordan and Kori. Then we all went up to Baguio to spend some R&R time.

The reports that are coming in from the Ladies Conference are so incredible. I will be posting them shortly. There were miracles of all kinds. God surely met us there. They had a record crowd in that region. It was good to be with them all.

So, I left Jeff at home in Alexandria on March 10th. That was 3 weeks ago. I know they say to never say never, but I can safely say, "NEVER" again will I be gone from him 3 weeks. I miss him. It doesn't help that I'm in a country that loves him very much and everywhere I go they ask me, "When is Sir Jeff coming?" You see this country is where Jeff has spent most of his growing up days. He loves it here and so do I. Tomorrow is the day that Jeff arrives. I get a special pass to get into the airport, thanks to our friend Captain Mayor!!!!

We will be very busy the first couple of months here. We have a lot of ground to cover. We are scheduled to go from the North to the South in a very short period of time. We're excited though. Jordan and Kori are ready to go with us. I'm thankful that they are here with us. Morgan will be one day. He's starting to feel what we've been feeling for some time now.

So that's the answer to your questions regarding why Jeff is not in any of our pictures. Keep checking back, he'll be in pictures soon.

Jordan-the official photographer.

They always had time for smile. Keep smilin girls!

Jordan and Kendra having a heart to heart conversation.

We were sitting at a rest area McDonald's and in walked in about 30 church people, and instantly Kendra's table was full of "new" friends. She never met a stranger.

I think there were praying over their food at TGIF'S.

K & K--always friends.

Farewell hug.
