West Virginia trip

We had a really great time at the Missions Conference in West Virginia. We left on Tuesday afternoon and only drove about 4 hours. We stopped overnight in Pennsylvania. We had a relaxing evening and everyone went to bed early. We got up on Wednesday and drove the rest of the way to Martinsburg, West Virginia.
We were at the Shenandoah Bible Baptist Church, pastored by Dr. Jeff Owens. We are overwhelmed by the generosity and kindess shown to us during our time there. We were given so many thoughtful gifts that we thought we might not fit everything into the van.
The highlight for the children was getting to spend time with other children their age. Luke, AJ & Victoria all got to spend the day at Martinsburg Christian Academy. They each went to a class that was all their grade and thoroughly enjoyed it. Victoria, especially, enjoyed spending time with other little girls. This picture is of Victoria with Caitlyn Domelle and Elizabeth McDonald.
We got home yesterday and though we had an amazing trip, we were glad to sleep in our own beds again. We are grateful to our newest supporting church for their outstanding hospitality. We felt so loved by everyone there.

  1. We are so glad you all came and enjoyed each night of the conference. Victoria was a joy - so bubbly like her mom! Caitlyn enjoyed having another friend to spend time time with. She says to tell Victoria hello!
