Okay, we are still here, despite the deafening silence on the blog. We have had a blogger's block lately.  Sometimes there are plenty of things to report on or comment on but you just don't feel that creative.  We have been feeling mentally draggy lately and realized we were just getting a little burned out.  So when it came time to leave the county to renew our visa, we decided to take advantage of some cheap tickets to Ft. Lauderdale and just recharge for a few days in the English-speaking world.  We just vegged in an old hotel on the most beautiful beach/boardwalk.  The hotel was close to everything we needed, so there was no need to rent a car.  (Time shares are a pain, but they come in handy sometimes!) We got back into our walking/jogging program and enjoyed  luxrious dips in the ocean afterward to cool off.  It's a good thing the real estate in coastal Florida is cost prohibitive for us or we would be tempted to buy retirement property! We got day passes for the city bus and set out to discover what the area had to offer (it had Olive Garden and PF Chang's and several malls full of foreign visitors from all over the world, taking advantage of good prices and unbelievable selection-just to name a few places). 
Well, armed with great tans and decluttered minds, we are back and feeling very refreshed and glad to be back in our own cozy home.  God is good to give us respite  as  well as renewed desire to serve.

So good to hear that others get "bloggers block" and a little fried around the edges. I still look up to you both and Sheri as my inspiration. Keep up the good work and I pray that God will continue to bless you all and the work that you do.
