Colorado Trip

We are finally back and getting settled again in the routine of city life. It was nice to be away and 'be one with nature' for 3 days skiing in Breckenridge COLORADO! It was beautiful as you can see from the pictures. We got to ski with friends of ours from church. Our pastor came and stayed with us one day and went skiing after 12 years of not!
The second half of the trip was a conference we had in Denver. It was our denomination's annual conference so most people from the denomination made a showing. We thought this would be good to go to to get to know people better in hopes of networking for the mission field. This proved a success as we got to have a meeting the the field director's for Ecuador! They seem really excited about what we want to do and really want to help get us there! This is such a MAJOR answer to prayer. Thank you to those of you who have been praying.

As well as the conference and rubbing shoulders with many 'Covenanters' we also got to reconnect with some of our friends from Seminary who are out in the trenches as pastor's! We are so proud of them and the work they are doing through Christ. It was such a joy and encouragement to see them all again and to catch up on life.

Pastor Paul and us after a day of skiing! We were all exhausted and sore.

Looks like you had a blast! There's nothing quite like skiing in Colorado.

How beautiful! We hoped to make it to CO last year, but we ended up going to IN. It was still nice. Anyway, I hope you were able to make lots of contacts with whom you shared your vision. :)

Ahhhh, it's beautiful. I can't remember the last time I got to go skiing- so glad you all got to enjoy yourselves.
