Coming Home July 2011

"TO EVERY THING THERE IS A SEASON AND A TIME UNDER THE HEAVEN." ECCLESIASTES 3:1

Working on new material for the blog!

It has taken me awhile to decide what to do with the blog. I felt lost not posting pictures of the missionaries and I've felt lost with not having my missionary routine. We are starting to settle into a different routine and I have decided to start blogging again. It will take me a little while to get things squared away but we are rolling into the next phase of our journey in life - recovery from the best experience of our lives ( the mission), knee surgery( Tim's), physical therapy for my back, and the economy with our business. We look forward to continuing our growth spiritually and preparing for what comes next!

Thank you so much for commenting on our blog. It's good to know you love our Sarah. She is working very hard there and needs your support. Thanks for your blog. I love it when I can see windows into the far off place where our daughter is serving. Jeri Howard

Sister Fry, I can tell by your comments, the love you have for these missionaries. You are always so positive. I can also feel the pure love of Christ in your voice.

I love the story of how you got called. You both are genuine and inspired. We sure appreciate your effort and care.
