Saying Good-bye!

After 2 years and 4 months in Ometepec, Mexico, we packed the house into our trailer and headed back to the States.  It was hard to say good-bye to so many people, so many memories.  We learned so much in our time there, built some incredible friendships and experienced a whole new culture.  Before we left we enjoyed a few "final moments" with some very special people.  

We went to the pool with Juliana, and everyone got their OWN bag of chicharones with salsa!  We miss you, Juliana!! 

Ben's final game with his Maranatha Veterans Team!

Chico, Carmen (left) and Terre (right)--such dear friends that we miss dearly!

 We had a tea party with girls!  We are so thankful for the friends God gave us in Ometepec!
Fatima and Lydia

Katie and Pily--I love you, friend, and miss you so much!

Juanita, Amada and Juliana (left to right)--three sisters who were part of our family!

With Carmen and her daughter Heidi--a family with such hearts to share the love of Christ!  

 Before heading out of Mexico, we spent a night in Acapulco with Pily and Gerardo and their kids.  We are so thankful for this sweet time, laughing and just being together.  We miss seeing our sweet neighbors every day!

We are thankful for our time in Ometepec, and we will miss it greatly!
