Final thoughts before completing our trip

So this is my last entry in this blog because tomorrow morning we will be heading for home. Before many will go to bed tonight our journey will begin, and just before many go to bed tomorrow our journey will end. This ending to my current travels will be the beginning of a new life in a new place. While the stories and events which have filled this blog have documented our efforts, challenges and many blessings, the story is only just beginning. Hopefully, we will have a lifetime of stories to tell in the end, and hopefully Carl will wish to share these stories with others who have had similar experiences.

As a final word, I would like to say that while I have not personally met or corresponded with many of the readers here, I feel as though we are somehow linked in our beliefs and support for each other. I hope that in the future I can be an encouragement and support for those who endeavor the same experience.

Goodbye and God bless



  1. Jeff, Good luck to you and your family! May God Bless each of you.


  2. Jeff and Twila, it has been such a blessing to me to be able to follow your journey of faith through this experience. Carl is a very blessed little boy to have been chosen to join your family. May God continue to use him and you to His glory. What a special Christmas this will be. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! Praying for you, Mearline Janssen

  3. Thanks for the blog! It was wonderful to follow! We are so happy for your family :)
