They say you have to leave your new home for a while and come back in order for it to really feel like home. Our two-month stint in Phoenix was the longest we’d been away from our home in Cape Town since we first moved here. Despite having called Phoenix “home” for so many years together (and for all of Hunter’s and Jeremy’s lives), we can definitely say it felt good to be “home” again in our Cape cottage.
Christmas and Cacti
After a month of meetings, ministry, and fellowship, it was a joy to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas with our American family. We even had a “friendsgiving” reunion with several of our dear, old college friends before the holidays officially commenced! Despite how much time had passed, despite how much had changed, it seemed so normal to be gathering with these particular friends and family to celebrate the season.
