The latest in the Shadle family:
-Portland was great. Lots of good time planning out the next year, and being fed from the word. I really feel like I reconnected with God in some sweet ways. Very refreshing.
-Melissa and the kids picked me up at the airport holding signs with stickers. It was heart-melting. I love these guys so much. They both ran to me and gave me big hugs. It was awesome.
-The last two days Melissa and I have been packing up and moving quite a bit of our stuff to a storage unit in town. This is becoming real! I've been a bit sentimental about the move, which has surprised me a bit.
-We're heading to "touch-a-truck" in Westerville today. The kids get to play in and "drive" fire trucks, ambulances, diggers, and whatever else you could think of. It should be fun.
-I'm giving brief ministry updates to two churches the next two weeks. I'd love your prayers!
-And we officially bought our tickets for Venezuela. August 31st!
