On the road again...

We are now in California hanging out with some of our favorite people on the planet. We are really enjoying our time here in the states...its been so refreshing and encouraging! And not to mention amazing food!

Here is what we've been up to...we flew into JFK airport last Wednesday and soon found out that there were no flights to DC. So I called my Dad who informed me he was already half way to New York to come pick us up! I know that everyone thinks their Dad is the best...but for reals...mine is! Thanks to my Dad we were able to make our flight to Portland the following morning. God is so good!

On our way out of NYC

Our time in Portland was awesome, we hung out with Paul's family and reconnected with friends and the church there in Vancouver. Paul and I got to share at the Sunday morning service at CC Vancouver, it was awesome and we felt so blessed by all the sweet people there. We left feeling so encouraged and excited to see what the Lord is going to do in Münster with all these prayer warriors interceding! Pastor Daniel and Karen treated us to lunch at Baja Fresh! Thank you all! And I think we did a pretty good job controlling ourselves with the salsa! :) We loved seeing everyone in the Portland area...we will miss you all!

We arrived in California on Wednesday and our good friend Adriel picked us up and has been hosting us at his beach house in Newport. Its been awesome to soak up some sun since we haven't seen the sun in months! We got to meet his fiance Gabbi, she is amazing! We also were able to meet up with Ben V. our friend and pastor who married us.

 Last night Adriel and Gabbi took us to Costa Mesa's college group called "The House". It was super refreshing and encouraging! After the service we drove down to Murrieta and spent the night at our friend John Greer's pad. And as I write Paul, Adriel and John are snowboarding on Big Bear Mountain, no doubt shedding it up!  Tonight we are going to see our friend Nick Garcia (YEAH!) and go to Reality LA with him tomorrow for church.Then hopefully I will finally get to see my little sis! She has been out of town on a retreat this week and is gonna be back Sunday night.

So thats all for now...we will be heading out to Virginia on the 27th. Also sorry there are not so many pics. I feel so bummed because we took tons of pictures but somehow they all got deleted!!!

*Please be praying for Chris and Nada back in Münster since they are having to fill in the holes that we fill most of the time. Pray that the Lord would bless and strengthen them and the people who are going to be serving in our positions while we here in the states.*

Thanks everyone, we love you all!

Cannot tell how excited we are to eat some REAL spicy food!!! Warning to all Mexican restaurants: Please be advised two missionaries from Germany will request salsa in glasses in order to drink it. Do not let them!
