Our furlough to the “mainland” as it is called in Hawaii was a short 3 weeks, but filled with so many wonderful visits with family and friends. We spent one week in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and two weeks in Hagerstown, Maryland. It was great to speak in our churches in both places, as we explained more details about our vision. The greatest times though had the kids while spending time with their grandparents. We come back to Hawaii with great memories and a refreshed sense that we are not forgotten, just like God promises us that “our labor of love is not forgotten” (Heb 6:10).
