Meet Osa

Phew! What a month. I don’t know about you, but for me, the month of February flew by. We hosted our first surgery team in two years. It’s so encouraging to continue to have groups step out in faith and come to serve in San Juan once again. I enjoyed getting back into the swing of working with teams. If I am being honest, the 5:30 am wake-up call has been hard to get used to, but I am so thankful to be able to work in this way once again. I look forward to hearing from the teams each evening about how they saw God working throughout their day.

At the end of January, I got a new puppy. She is a Goldendoodle and I named her Osa. I have been looking for a doodle for sale in the country since I moved there, and finally found one last month. This made for a very busy month! I’m happy to say she is one of the best puppies, and I have enjoyed getting to know her and training her. I do still have my dog in the states, Rio, who lives with my parents. Unfortunately, it just is not possible to get him to the DR.
One day this month I watched Brantley for the day while Jeff and Kamanda and Breagan went to the capitol to work on their visa and residency. Having Brantly there would have made a long day of waiting even longer. I enjoyed being able to spend the day with him. I took him to school in the morning, we had lunch at the Guesthouse, had rest time at the Bucher’s in the afternoon, went on a bike ride at the land, and got burgers for dinner. He finally fell asleep around 9:30 that evening. I love spending time with Brantley!

I spent that last week of the month in the US. In my last blog, I talked about how I was coming home for one of my best friend’s weddings. Last Friday I flew to Indianapolis Indiana, and we had the bachelor party. It was so fun to spend time with friends that weekend. On Sunday my dad came and picked me up in Indiana. I spent the week in Peoria with my family and was even able to catch up with a few close friends. It was so nice to be able to do my best to relax and spend time with my family and the dogs. Cole even came home from college this weekend so we all could spend time together as a family.

The wedding weekend was a blast. It was an honor to be able to stand next to Hunter and Cecily on their big day. Their wedding was in Pella Iowa, which is a very cool dutch styled town. I enjoyed spending extra time with Noah, Hunter, and Alex as we all stayed together the night before the wedding. Noah and his wife Chloe live in Broad Ripple, Indiana, Alex lives in Sudan and works for Samaritan’s purse, and Hunter and Cecily will live in Houston Texas. I cherish the time we were able to spend together since we all live in different parts of the world, quite literally.

I am so thankful for my friends in the DR who watched Osa while I traveled to the states. I know how difficult puppies can be so I am thankful they were willing to watch her. Thank you, Hoovers, Hannah, Alejandro, and Kailey. I enjoyed getting pictures of her daily.
