What's next for us?

Cathy - Beth - Heather
We have finished our formal ministry in Kaiserslautern, Germany.  We will start our home assignment (furlough) here in Europe.  We are blessed to have the opportunity to attend a missionary care retreat in Croatia.  It is an all expense paid retreat (lodging, food and conference fees) that is geared for foreign missionaries. 
We are looking forward to spending the next few days getting some rest, reconnecting with one another and with the Lord.  There will be a time of teaching and worship every night, time of fellowship, and REST. We have the honor to attend this retreat with a few of our Cadence colleagues:  Kyle & Melissa Carnegie, Heather Lite and Beth Mabry.  We are looking forward to spending some quality time with them.

We will be back in Colorado in November.  We are excited to spend the holidays with our friends and family.  We will spend most of our time, after the holidays, reconnecting with our supporters.  We will be in touch with many of you as we begin to pull together our road trips. 
We will be also focusing on our  move to Japan. Lou will be visiting Yokosuka in November to see the ministry in action, meet the folks we will be doing life with and to get the lay of the land.  Please pray as we prepare for this next assignment. We know there will be adjustments as we learn to minister to naval servicemen and women and to live in the Asian culture.  We also  ask that you would pray for our goods as they left Germany just a few weeks ago.  Pray that they will arrive safe and dry!
