From Brussels, Belgium, to the Bowles moving to Bangkok, the Bridges moving to Bogota, and a reunion in Birmingham, this post is sponsored by the letter B!
Just a recap for you......we met John & Julie Bowles in September 2013 at a missionary training. We met again in Brussels, Belgium in January 2014 where we spent a month together. We said goodbye in February 2014. The Bowles moved to Bangkok, we moved to Bogota. We were reunited for the first time in almost 4 years in Birmingham last weekend. It was wonderful.
This is John and Avery in Brugge, Belgium
John, Julie, me & Avery ~ January 2014
Julie & I Friday night
John & Julie attended college in Birmingham, so we took a drive through their campus.
Then we went to dinner & it was very good.
We spent almost 24 hours talking so much, a little about kids and life now, reminisced about living a month in community in Belgium, and talked A LOT about missionary life on the field and transition back to the USA. It was so great for us to share experiences, good and hard, with people who are interested, asked questions, and understand. We have found that is a rare thing, but so important for people transitioning back to another country.
John & Julie are planning to return to Bangkok in summer of 2014.
