Today was Mr. Perrella's birthday, so we brought him an ice cream cake after dinner and the kids' hand-made cards to celebrate. Both he and his wife were so cute because they were saying they were having withdrawals and abandonment issues because we're leaving! ahaha! We said they are going to be SOOO happy to not have us pesty Gregory's around anymore! They have really been fantastic landlords, and more than that, they are great friends. We're already planning a 'dining experience' with them at 'our place' on Sunday. They said they really only use their dining room table when we all get together, and since they have another table in the kitchen, they offered the dining room table to us until we find one of our own - wow! Like I said, they're amazing.
BTW - update on our ministry to the local church - it is really going well. We have been so confirmed over and over we are right where God wants us. It doesn't get any better than that! Thank you all again for your prayers! Well, I must get going - lots of planning to do!! Blessings to all.
