coming home

Hi family and friends! 

This is been a week of some forward steps (literally quite a few for Mark:), but also some discouraging moments as well. We truly appreciate your continued prayers, emails and encouragement! We now have very exciting news! We finally have a plan!
It's hard to explain the emotions that word brings to our hearts! Jeremiah 29:11-14 reminds us that God knows the plans HE has for us... We continue to learn how much we want to make our own plans!

Lord willing, we will fly home on a non-stop flight August 4 to Chicago! When I got off the phone. Mark just looked at me, smiled his crooked smile, and gave me a big thumbs-up:)

Details will follow...rejoicing and praising God! 

He continues to be faithful - anchored in,
Mark and Lori

 he still is keeping us smiling
