We may not have furniture, but...

WE HAVE FOOD!!!
WOW! We arrived in DeLand a little after 5 p.m. tonight to an unbelievable welcome! We stepped out of our cars at the Gmitro house to a welcoming committee yielding cameras, hugs and genuine excitement! We feel so loved!!

We walked inside to find a dining room FULL of stuff for our new home. Everything from spaghetti sauce (19 to be exact) to paper towels to goldfish to tuna to medicines for Jonah to juice, gatorade, water and chocolate syrup! Seriously, EVERYTHING was thought of! Take a look!








And, as a side bonus, they organized everything into categories so it can be packed up that way and unloaded at home! Do they know me or what??

Thanks to our new family at Stetson Baptist Church for such a wonderful welcome! We are blown away by your kindness to our family.

Looks like you guys are going to be drinking juice for the next year! What a blessing! Our first church that we served at after we were married gave us a pounding and we had 30 cans of green beans! We have had a pounding at every church and it is always a welcome sight! I am so glad you guys are home!

You deserve it. Dan works harder than any minister I know. You deserve to be loved and cared for.
