Back To Life


As we sit writing this from a small cottage nestled in the green countryside of England, we pause to reflect on our time in the States. Following is a summary of our summer.

Between the time we left England on Dec 15th and returned on Oct 7th, we travelled 34,628 miles by plane, 33,971 miles by automobile, visited 52 churches, slept in 61 different beds, visited 33 States, 3 foreign countries and only ate at McDonalds 3 times. The final stat is perhaps the most amazing and one we are quite happy about. We did eat at Subway approx 3 million times during this time period.

To sum furlough up, it was all good. God kept us safe, supplied and scheduled. We found furlough to be an amazing journey of going back to visit old friends and telling them what has been going on in England. We are glad to be back in Cornwall and are in the process of looking for a house, cars, beds and other sundry items to set up life again. We look forward to Lord willing, being in the same place for 5 years and seeing what God has in store for Liskeard Baptist Church.

In case you were wondering, that averages out to 236 miles each and every day we were back in the States. Think we will fire our scheduler before the next furlough!!


  1. Kudos to you for only stopping at McDonalds 3 times! Subway is definitely the better option.


    We enjoyed having you all with us back in August at LVBC!

  2. Welcome back to the mission field.

    Glad to hear of God's blessings on your time back in the U.S. I am sure that your brief summary only touches the reality of just how busy you were on your "furlough".

    I anxiously await the updates from England on how God continues to bless in the work of the Lord there.

    God bless you all.
