We dreamed of this moment for many reasons.
Our missionary community in Uganda is a blessing to us. As we share meals made from scratch and wade through struggles in a foreign place together we often dream of what it would be like to grab a quick meal at a fast food restaurant or shop in an American store!
We were so thrilled to meet up with the Calhoon family (from our Uganda missionary community) in Sacramento for a few days and enjoy some of the amenities of the US. We delighted in our first In&Out burgers, shopped at REI (but of course!) and relaxed with Destiny's family on a Sunday afternoon.
We also held that new baby as much as possible!!!
We loved being able to see our friends and connect in person for a brief visit before going our separate ways again. Many thanks to their family for graciously sharing their last day together with us.
We parted, with prayers for safe travels and hopes of seeing them soon on the flip side, at home again in Uganda.
Next on the Cash Family agenda...
Destroy the agenda.
No schedule. No plan. Just our family. Our kids. Some laughing. Some games. Some fun. Hopefully some rest.
The responsibilities of Home Ministry Assignment were right around the corner. But we had a few breaths to take first.
