Today our family took a much needed break from MTI and went to eat lunch at Chic-Fil-A and then went to visit Garden of the Gods (or, as our family called it, "God's Garden" :) It was a stunningly beautiful day!
Benaiah and Talitha were with us too, but it was too much effort to get them in the picture! :)
After we left "God's Garden" we went for a drive while the little ones slept in the car. We saw a herd of deer next to the road. Very cool, but the boys were disappointed to not see them clashing their antlers together.
Then, thanks to Eric and his map (once again) we attempted to drive up a random mountain. The road deteriorated into dirt and snow and we never found the top, but it was a beautiful drive (and we never got lost, blew a tire, drove off the edge....etc....)
The view from the top was great. :)
Next week, we are starting the second part of our time here at MTI. It's a 3 week session on cross-culture training. We've heard that it can be emotionally rigorous. Please continue to pray for us. Living away from home isn't the easiest and we would really like to be (and stay) completely healthy again! It is our prayer that we won't just survive MTI, but that we will thrive here and use our time here to build God's kingdom.
And, if you keep scrolling down I put a few other posts up, as well. :)
