"What or Where is home?"
This is a question we have asked ourselves a lot on this stateside assignment. We traveled this last month to two places we have called home for the longest periods of our lives. We were blessed to share in Hibbing Minnesota the town and church Raeni and I called home for during our childhood. We also had the opportunity to be in Plymouth Wisconsin the place we called home just before moving to France. These were both great places to be at and share what God was doing in Paris but also got us thinking about what home is. We have been living in the USA for 9 months now and will transition back to France in three months. Are we home now? Will we be home in three months? Were we home when we were with family and friends in the places we grew up in and served? Yes and no. We, as a family, have striven to be home where we are but we always know ultimately we are just passing through. God will eventually call us home and we long for that. But that doesn't excuse us from just skipping out on ministry in the time we have here on earth. We have a purpose and a reason for each place we live. As do each one of you!
March saw the end of Fayth and Hannah's swim season. They both did amazingly well and swam all their events faster than they have ever swam before. They enjoyed the season and the new coach. We now are breathing a sigh of relief as we no longer need to drive each of them to two different swim times three or four times a week.
We spoke at three churches, a youth group and a ladies retreat as well as various other conversations with people about Envision Paris. April slows down in speaking engagements with only one scheduled but Raeni travels to Paris to help with the International Children's ministry seminar and we continue teaching at Crown. Next week we head to Cleveland Ohio to help train future interns at Envision's Intern training.
As we start the countdown to our return to France. We have started the visa application process, as well as starting to choose which items to pack and which items to store. The return to Paris brings added costs to our support account. We have to travel to Chicago for the visa appointment and tickets were just under $1000.00 for the four of us and visas are $400. We also are looking to purchase tickets to Paris before the end of April and tickets are looking to be about $500 per person. If you would like to help purchase a plane ticket, help defray the cost of the visa trip or help offset other expenses of moving our life back to Paris please click the give now button to the right and give to our support account.
Thanks for listening.
Tony, Raeni, Fayth and Hannah Roos.reign freely in our lives and to pave the way in Paris.
