Fun with family

Like last year, Jenn’s mom and her husband came for a visit during the boys’ fall break. We had just finished up a visit from a colleague and a week with our first volunteer team, so we were a bit tired when they arrived. But even though we kept things low key this visit, I think everyone had a great time!


















A taste of the USA

We had a great time with our first volunteer team a couple of weeks ago. Eleven folks from¬†Cross Pointe Church¬†spent just over a week in Norway. We enjoyed introducing them to our country, the food, friends, and other things that we’ve come to love over the past 20 months.

We appreciated their energy, enthusiasm, and willingness to learn. We enjoyed their support and encouragement. We loved introducing them to our friends and local partners here. And we were grateful for the way they approached every day with a heart for serving.
And as if that was not enough, they also surprised us with lots of gifts and treats. You should have seen the boys’ faces light up over Pop-Tarts, macaroni and cheese, muffin mix, candy, toys, and so many other things.
