On the Road in the US of A!

Hey all! This is just a quick update to let you all know of our travels here in the United States. We’ve travelled about 7,000 miles since arriving here a month and a half ago, and been tremendously encouraged to see many of you! We’ve been able to speak so many times, from Church meetings, to college classes, to small groups and even to tea parties… actual tea parties, not the political thing. J

Here a few pictures of a few of the things we’ve done so far. We hope you enjoy and are encouraged by this. We also want to say a big thank you to all those who have hosted us and helped us and provided for us. We couldn’t have done those 7,000 miles and wouldn’t be able to do the next 7 or 10,000 without everyone’s generosity and encouragement. Finally, before I get to the pictures, just want to again say that if you would like us to visit and share with you about our work in Ghana that we’ve been doing and about our plans to start a new ministry in Cameroon this January, please let us know. We are always looking for opportunities to visit and encourage! God bless!

Brittney and her Aunt Debbie at the Oklahoma City Zoo. Debbie and her husband Kerry were our hosts in Oklahoma City. We were truly blessed by our time there, visiting with Brittney’s family and also with the saints there. The Northwest Church of Christ was, as always, a huge encouragement to us.

Hannah and Jonathan with their cousins Matthew and Merriel in Albuquerque, NM. We really enjoyed our time with them and their parents Pat and Becky, who is another of Brittney’s aunts.

 Fun times in Ruidoso, NM. We were blessed to be able to share with the church there, and were treated to some fun times by some of the saints out there, including a great Western show at the Flying J Ranch.
Welcome to Montana! We had a great time with family and friends, encouraging and being encouraged.

They came out, along with Emily, Sharon and Stacey’s  husbands, to the Montana Family Camp. It was so encouraging to be there and to have them there as well.

Broyles’ Family Reunion. We had such a wonderful time with my mom’s family and extended family.

Well, that’s all the pictures  we have for now. There are many more we could share, and many, many more things we wish we had pictures of, because brethren, we have really been blessed, in Fulton, Missouri, Oklahoma City, Albuquerque and Ruidoso New Mexico, Colorado,  Montana, Guthrie and Morris Oklahoma, and North Carolina. We have so many thanks to say, and hope you all know that we dearly appreciated our time and the ways in which you have all been a blessing to us. We look forward to seeing many more of you and pray that we can also continue to bring encouragement to you as well, as we journey to Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, and more! God bless you all!

In Christ,

The Travellin’ Hostetters J
