Ten Questions?

Well there is a subtle shift in the focus of our blog now that we are home... those interested in our adventures in India are waning, maybe just checking up to see if they will see us in person or if Ryan has a job yet, while those in India are wondering the same thing.
  1. Where are you? South Bend, Indiana.
  2. What are you eating? Pizza, raspberries and other fresh fruits, wraps and others things that mix veggies with a little meat. We are trying to eat smaller portions, less meat and more vegetables than last time we were living in America. No we have not eaten Indian since we stepped off the plane.
  3. How is Anna? She seems to be adjusting well enough but she is being a little bit of a pill with grandma. While she is still shy she does not seam to worry about getting pinched when she is out.
  4. What do we think of the weather? It is really cold here, I am using a blanket a lot, when will it get above 85F???
  5. Will you go back to India? Maybe... not right now.
  6. So what is your next step? Ryan is applying to engineering jobs, we are visiting family and churches and trying to give Anna some structured days too. Nancy has started working as a mystery shopper again.

Where are the rest of the ten questions? You will have to email us :)

    Visiting Plans

    Good news! After a week of Anna always being in contact with either Nancy or I we were able to have her walk into a house we have not been at for a year while we stood next to the car. Ah the joy of visiting Gama and Papa! We stayed with them for several months before leaving for India and now we are back. Though this time it is for a couple weeks before we travel to other towns to visit some friends which is before I settle down with a job.

    We have a couple of talks scheduled for the next couple weeks.

    On July 27th we will be visiting Lakeshore Baptist Church in Stevensville Michigan.

    On August 3rd we will be visiting First Reformed Grandville Michigan.

    Also on the 3rd we will involved in an open house from 1-3pm in Rockford Michigan.

    In between this we are visiting individual supporters and I am applying to jobs, I do have one good prospect now and many more resumes being sent out each day.

    We plan to visit St. Louis and then Detroit the first and second two weeks of August, subject to change due to job search.
