It's been a while...

...but we've been busy! 10 days in the UK to visit family and friends just wasn't enough time.

The Cousins

First, it was a day and night in Southend with the family after a long and sleepless flight over the Atlantic. Respect to immagration at Terminal 5, though - they saw all the children and led us to the front of the queue!
Then it was on to Birmingham to see (in order): The Lane and Styles families, The Wards, The Fergusons, St John's Church, The Davies, The Varleys and The Harrisons - whew!

Then we had another few days in Southend, visiting family and 'resting'. Finally, we had some time with the Delves family, who set us safely on our way to the airport.
Noah and Jason

It was great to see so many people, even more than we had initally hoped. God was so faithful and good to us - time with friends and family was wonderful, though never really long enough. It's so great to know that there are still so many people in our lives who we may not see enough of, yet can still pick up where we left off.

Now we're looking forward to playing host to all of these lovely people who so generously hosted, fed and generally put up with us and all our STUFF!

Thank you to all who prayed for our trip. We were very blessed and He was very good to us in every part of our journey.The Delves (trying to steal Ellie!)
