Last weekend we enjoyed our last team retreat with the Deutschmanns and Andersons. Both of these couples are retiring and returning to the US within the next month. Liz and Paul Meiners, member care coordinators for Europe, joined us in the city of Olomouc. Although our time together was brief, it was sweet. We enjoyed a time of singing (in English!) and Paul spoke to us from Ecclesiastes. We will miss our friends and partners in ministry who have helped us so much over the past two years. Please pray for them as they make the transition back to the United States. We have heard that returning to your native culture after living abroad is actually a more difficult adjustment than moving into a foreign culture.
