Texas

So it's been almost a month since we've been back in Texas, and we have eaten almost all the American foods that we were craving while in Peru. We've gotten to visit with so many great friends and family, and we are really enjoying catching up with people.

God has given us several opportunities to share with different groups and churches. It has been so encouraging to hear how many people are praying for us.

Last night we hung out and talked with the RA's and GA's at my parents church. We showed them some pictures, some of which were of animals in the jungle (both dead and alive). One girl was very dismayed to see that we ate guinea pig considering she had a pet guinea pig. Sorry! But they had some great questions. But the coolest thing to me was that when they were asked at the beginning of our time together who was there to speak with them, a lot of the kids raised their hands and then said Bryan and Delana Davis. The leader- "and where are they serving?" "PERU!!" So encouraging to see a group of kids learning about what God is doing all through the world, and that they care about what we are doing.

I can't tell you how nice it's been to just sit in church and be ministered to. It's shown me how neglectful I've been to let the Lord minister to me every day. Sometimes I just think I can do it on my own, or there's so much to get done. It's also nice to sing in English.

We are really enjoying our time, but I really miss the people we work with. I know when the time comes, I will be ready to go back. It seems like so much longer than 3 weeks that we've been here. It feels like we've been away a really long time.

Hopefully I'll update sooner the next time. Because we are just visiting with people, there's not many interesting things to tell. So instead of a boring post, I'll post next time there is something to tell. Or maybe I'll ask Bryan =)

The size of the baby right now!
