We’re quickly coming to our scheduled departure date for this summer’s home assignment/representation trip. We’ve pretty much wound down almost all of our ministry tasks except for one weekly online tutorial session, a church breakfast planned for this Sunday, and any interactions we can squeeze in with our church members.
Mostly, we’re trying to get ready to leave for over 3 months which includes a variety of logistics from bill-paying ahead, making sure we have the dog taken care of while we’re away, making lists of things we need to take, things we’ll need to buy in the USA, and ordering things we’ll need to be awaiting us in Dallas for the rest of the summer.
Another thing we typically do is make sure we have enough small gifts to share with hosts and friends/family as we travel. That’s generally a fun activity and we often accumulate these things over the course of the year, but we always need more things just before we leave.
So, Bethie and I made a quick visit to Tequisquiapan earlier this week. I took my camera for “just in case.” There’s almost always something new if you look for it.
