Team Jamaica Reunion
Yesterday was awesome. We got to be together with Plattners and Hubers, our Jamaican teammates who have both recently transitioned back to life in the States. We have not really experienced life on the island without them yet, so I can't say that I miss them yet. I mean, I do miss them but neither of their departures has sunk in, or felt real. Therefore I don't miss them in that sense. They came over to my mom and dad's, and my whole family was there, and we just enjoyed hanging out, chatting and watching the kids all play together. This event will definitely be one of our top highlights from our three weeks together (although we missed Erin Davis, John Huber and Alan Roth, who were in Illinois presenting on our ministry). We also praise God that Plattners have made West Lafayette their home, and that Hubers plan to move 30 minutes away to Monticello. That means that our trips home will be close to our Jamerican family as well. We love spending time with those who really understand life on the island, and who relate to us so well and can encourage us and speak truth to us, with whom we can communicate without the barriers that we often face. We also need to know what life is like for them, to be able to share in their burdens and joys as they do with ours. So, yeah, it was a great night together and we felt very blessed to have this opportunity.
