Unfortunately, we all managed to get sick while we were in Nashville, a combination of run-down immune systems after over two months on the road, and a nasty cold virus that was going around that time of year. It started with Rusty, who completely lost his voice, not a great thing to happen to a missionary trying to report on his work! Then, Ben and Elizabeth got sick, and finally, the older two boys and me. Elizabeth got it the worst, and actually spent several hours at the hospital for steroids and breathing treatments one afternoon. We are so thankful for the compassion and understanding of our church family, both at Hillsboro and globally, during this time (see my post about this here).
Here are a few highlights of our time in Nashville (before the sickies consumed us!):
|The Hillsboro Church of Christ|
|Catching up with my childhood friend, Rebekah|
|Catching up with friends from our Thyatira, Mississippi days, Jeff and Angie Stacks|
|Family Mission Trip reunion at the Hall's house -- such a fun evening!|
|Isn't this Ecuadorian flag cake beautiful?!|
