Fergusons are here, SURPRISE!
We are so blessed and thankful to have made it here to California safely. After traveling with a 4, 3 and 1 yr. old for 19 hours, we were praising God for our sanity! We were so excited that we had our whole family and friends believing we were coming home on November 10th when the WHOLE TIME we had planned on coming in Oct. 19th. We had each and every surprise planned for months and we could hardly wait till we were finally embracing family after two long years away from them. Thank you for keeping us in your prayers. Our first thoughts as we came back into America were, "Wow, everything is so big and open here." And we were in awe of all the advertising. It's funny how much we can forget by being over seas for just two years. Jonathan has been invited to speak at a few churches to share what the Lord has been doing with us in Kenya and to teach some studies. We are so excited to meet new friends and are thankful for the opportunities to share with other believers. Tomorrow Jonathan will be teaching at a church in Arizona called Cross Connection International Fellowship. Please pray that the fellowship is blessed by the teaching and pray for opportunities to minister in this sweet fellowship. Things have been a whirlwind since we've arrived and we ask for your continued prayers for our family as we adjust for this short period of time. We will be in California till mid-January. Special thanks to my best friend, my grandma, Judy, for running around all over town to get everything in the house so we didn't have to worry about coming home and having to shop for diapers, find a high chair or stroller, get food. And thanks for keeping up the web of lies on our behalf so we can surprise the rest of the family. Special thanks to our F5 care team; Linda and Ross, Dorrys,Susan and Les, Katie, Nikki, The Copalbo Family and the Hinrichs Family for the goody basket and for all of your arranging and running around on our behalf so we can settle quickly. We just love you guys and are so thankful and blessed. We thank you again for your out pour of love for our family. If you would like us to share with your small group or church, please contact Jonathan Ferguson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Love, The Fergusons
