A Visit with the Parents

Well, the Roberts are in mourning today. My parents, who had been visiting for the past 10 days had to return to their home in Columbia, SC. It has been over a year since we saw them last. So, it was great getting to see them again!

The trip went really well. We just wish it wasn't so short. While they were here, they got to see the grandkids, tour the city, visit a village, go on safari, and a do few other things. It was great having the opportunity to show them some of the work that we are involved in here and just to spend some time with them again. I know I've said it before, but it's worth repeating. Leaving family and friends to serve God overseas is the highest cost we incur as being missionaries. So, when they do get to come and visit, it is such a treat. I just wish it wasn't going to be another year before we see them again : (.

Anyways, if you know them and get a chance, ask them about their trip. I'm sure they would love to tell you about it.
