Leighton took these pictures in Mt Maunganui, of the Bay of Plenty at sunrise, from our balcony. We are at the Bay of Islands now. We will post more pictures when we find the connection cord. It is lost.
We have ten days left on this trip. William is excited to get back to his babies (stuffed cat and bear) and Bubba and Sissy. Samuel is sad that our time is almost over here, but he is looking forward to seeing his friends. I told Leighton yesterday that I miss cooking for him, and I miss our friends and family. Leighton doesn't talk much about what he misses. He does talk about what he has learned here about God, himself, our family, and his work. I will leave that for him to tell.
It has been really rewarding to share this journey with you all, and it has been especially encouraging to read your notes. Thank you so much for sending your love and support. We love and miss you all.
