Hurray, Hurray, Let’s Celebrate!

That is what we were told that Abby said upon hearing of our arrival home! We enjoyed spending time with her yesterday.

It was a full day: unpacking, sorting through mail, and trying to catch up on things. We have quite a bit to accomplish over the next week, but we’re excited about the next “leg” of the trip. Thank you all for praying for us.

One incredible “praise the Lord” is that not one of us had a cold on this last trip, and considering how much we’re exposed to colds throughout the trip, it’s very amazing. A cold can make speaking and traveling a challenging proposition!

So, back to work, as there is much to do before the next trip!


Abby was happy to see everyone again.
Even though we were gone just 2 1/2 weeks, there was still a lot of mail to sort.
Lots to do, including grocery shopping.

  3. So sweet! Those little girls are just beautiful. Bethany is one of the prettiest babies I’ve ever seen.

  4. So glad you are all catching up on your toddler and baby snuggles! Bethany is absolutely adorable. I’ve always loved the little dimples in a baby’s elbows. Praising God for your health and safety.

  5. Our Abigail who is standing right here next to me says,”Tell them that Abigail is soooo cute!” Bethany is adorable and has grown so much already. I love her dark hair and Abigail’s hair is getting so long and looks so full. Does it have a natural curl/wave?
    So glad you all made it home safely! We’ll continue to pray as you get caught up at home and prepare for your next trip.
    Abby’s hair is naturally a bit curly :-).

  6. In one of the pictures, Bethany’s hair looks a little reddish. Is that just the lighting of the photo?

    Just the lighting–her hair is dark! πŸ™‚

  7. Nathan and Melanie,

    I keep on looking at your bundle-of-joy-baby-girl-blessing-from-God. We’ve been praying for her with you – – now here she is! The little blessing – – in your arms. What precious joyful daughters you have. Praise the Lord! I am so happy for your family. What a beautiful, wonderful blessing. Thank you for sharing these sweet photos.
