Shirley, Solihull Issue #163 22 April 2014
It has been such a joy to
come home to England!
While we’re still
experiencing the affects
of extended travel fatigue
– especially early in the
morning – our internal
clocks seem to have
adjusted to the local
time. Much of our time
has been spent sorting
through e-mails and
accumulated during our travels, prioritizing and catching up with
activities that took place in our absence, and reconnecting with
our English family. One of the greatest joys upon our return was
to the baptism of two of our lovely thethirdplace family
members, Karen and Dodie, on Easter Sunday. What a privilege
for us to participate in their ongoing spiritual journeys!
Prayer Dates: 22 April to 12th
Note: Unexpected travel plans (see Family Update) for Tammy
may impinge on some of these activities.

Support Situation and Needs
We are continuing to write letters and e-mails to raise the
additional support we need for the next few years. Currently we
have $245 of the $2000 monthly support committed; we have
about $5300 of the $15,000 needed to replace our vehicle. You
can go to http://cmfi.org/ttaho to give online.
Share our prayer requests with friends and church family, but
please do not post them on the web or attempt to contact
individuals via social media (such as Facebook) in any form.
We woke up this morning (22nd
April) to the news that Tammy’s
mom was in hospital again, this time for abdominal pain. She was
released after investigation indicated no physical cause, but
Tammy will likely need to make a trip to Oregon in the next few
days to be with her as well as assist with packing and settling for
her upcoming move. Please pray for peace and healing for
Tammy’s mom, and energy and travel mercies for Tammy.
During our time in America we weren’t able to connect with
Andrew and Jess as often as we would have liked, but have
talked to them since our return to England. Jess is both excited
about her upcoming graduation (23rd
May) and a bit stressed as
she is now in the process of completing her first post-doctoral
job applications. Andrew’s work hours vary from week to week,
but we’re happy that he’s been able to arrange time off to travel
to San Diego to be with Jess when she graduates. We are also
grateful that our friends Ona, Ruth, Rachel, Jake and little
Amelia will be there as ‘family’.
Thanks for all your love and support!
