More Great Barrier

Some Photos from Great Barrier

Landed in North America

We are on route to Canada, and are currently having an eight hour stop over in LA.  We have had a wonderful time at INS on Great Barrier Island, NZ.  Father has been revealing so much of His measureless love to us.  It was such a rich, rich time for us as a family and of course we are so excited to come home and share with many of you over the next several months.  We are looking forward to seeing many friends and family who we have not seen for almost four years now.

This is just a quick note to say hi and Merry Christmas, since we have real internet again!

Much love to you all,

Jason, Theresa, Maiya, Ayda, Hannah, and Nasira

Latest Family Picture

We had the privilege of being part of a picture session with our extended family here in Creston.  It was so much fun!  Our kids cooperated for the most part....

Westward Bound!

We took the train!!  After looking into renting a van and assessing how much stuff we had to bring we decided that we wouldn't fit...
What an exciting trip.  None of us have ever been on a passenger train, so the excitement was through the roof when it was time to go.  We took the Amtrack through the US because it was a bit faster and cheaper for us as a family of 6!
AMAZING friends (Elisa Jersak and the girls, Joe and Kristin Eapen and Jonah)  took us to Grand Forks, ND and got us safely on the train.  It took us around 24 hours to get to Sandpoint, ID where Nana and Papa Eheler picked us up.
These pictures are of us in the viewing car where we could go and watch the great scenery.  We were disappointed that it was dark by the time we got to the Rockies:(
