The TE, so Far...

JAARS, the technical support "wing" of Wycliffe Bible Translators, here in Waxhaw, N.C. is where Jerry is taking the Technical Evaluation AIM-Air requires

We chuckled over the hand-written note on this snack machine in the hangar. Leave it to super-frugal missionaries to try their foreign coins!!
Jerry in the plane. They're "getting to know each other", as he hangar-flies and perfects his pre-flight, as he's done nearly every free moment he's had while here.

You'll have to ask him how he feels about the TE today...but last time someone asked, he said, "hopeful". After the first day's work, he was very anxious and had trouble getting his mind off the evaluation, with the anxiety of the upcoming flights. Now that he's had two flights, he's more calm. But please, keep praying!
Weather has prevented two scheduled flights from occurring, so it looks like we'll be here through the weekend to hopefully get those completed.

Every night we talk to the kids. It seems we miss them more than they miss us! I feel especially direction-less without my typical days' activities of getting them up (or them getting me up!), dressed, fed and educated! But we're so glad they're having fun at Grandma & Grandpa's and get this opportunity to spend an extended stay with them. They'll cherish those memories & miss them when we're living overseas!
