Rough months

It's been quite a while since we've been able to blog. The last few months have been a flurry of events. We have been back to the states twice in the last 3 months. Our last trip was to attend Ed's mother's funeral. She had been battling cancer for 3 years. We were blessed in that we were able to go back and spend 3 good weeks with her in August. It was hard to say goodbye to such an amazing, godly woman but we are comforted by the fact that she is with our Lord and Savior. She will continue to be part of our lives always by the life she lived and the truths she taught. Through us, we pray her sweet spirit can still continue to touch lives.

We have been back in Nairobi for about 3 weeks now trying to get into a routine with teaching. It's been difficult at times, but we are blessed with an amazing family back home supporting us and wonderful friends here pushing us along. We are thankful that we walk with the Lord and are continually comforted by His presence. We will write more soon....

In Him,
Ed & Tricia

wow So I didn't know your mother in law but this post just made me tear up. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. But I love your outlook and attitude. She must have been an amazing woman and it's apparent the impact she had on your lives.
I hope your little one is doing well. Aren't they so much fun!! ;)
