Jon has made it to Roma!! Thank you for your prayers. I feel very far away from him. I am also a little jealous. Okay a LOT jealous. There are a lot of people who feel like New York City is their second home... well I loved Rome when we went before it is an amazing city. So I kinda know what they mean even though I have been there only once. He had an uneventful plane ride. Which is good. He has already visited the Colosseum and had lunch down around the corner. Which was a suggestion in Rick Steve's book so if you are ever traveling Europe pick up one of his books or one of his videos. He has a great website. He is also on PBS every Wednesday at 12:00.
His goal is to stay awake as long as possible and then go to bed tonight. It is 7 hours ahead. He has a meeting with a missionary friend who has been in the country for 7 years. Brent. Some of you might remember him. He is a Calvary chapel missionary who has been there this long on a student visa. He has just returned two weeks ago on a different visa. Things are starting to shape up. We bought quad band phones to use over seas and he is unable to use it again. Pray I can get AT and T to answer and fix the problem. He usually handles this. As for me... we have sick children and that usually happens when he is gone. Today looks a little more hopeful. We also were able to move into a furnished month to month apartment. YEAH! It really helps for us to have our own space. Bye for now I will keep you updated. thanks for everything!!!
