This weekend, we decided to make one last and very quick trip up to TN before leaving for Portugal in September. While this trip is giving us the great joy of being able to see so many of our friends and loved ones, it is a trip with a very specific purpose.
The good news is that we have found an amazing house to rent in Portugal. It will be perfect for our ministry and life as it is in the middle of the city and is convenient to parks, shops, friends, and more. We believe it will help us integrate even more into our city as well as give us the opportunity to better serve those in our community. The bad news is that the building does not allow dogs. So, we have made the very difficult decision to give away our fur baby. While we know she will be in good hands and in a loving home, we are heartbroken. So, this trip is to deliver Leeloo and to say goodbye. We understand that the life that we have been called to has many difficult aspects, and this is just part of it. We will miss her, but as always, we are excited for what the future holds, and we are anxious to get back to our home.
