This month saw the long awaited arrival of the Jones’. Hudson and Kari had raised support and hoped to be over here earlier this year, when they found out they were pregnant. They decided to wait until baby Desmond was born, before moving here. They finally moved here the first part of this month. We are so thankful to have them here serving alongside us. They both bring so much talent to the team, not to mention Hudson grew up here and Kari has spent a lot of time as an intern here, so they are both an asset culturally for the team. I am really happy not only to have them on the team, but to have two other Americans my age over here. It will be nice to have another American guy my age in JV Slovakia.
When they arrived, I had the privilege to bring them from Bratislava to Banská Bystrica, where they stayed a couple of days before going on to the East to Košice, where they will live. Last week I also had the privilege to go out and visit them, and to see the apartment where they are living. I am so thrilled to have them here! Please pray for them and little Desmond as they get settled, wait for their container, work on Visas, and as they get involved in the ministry here!
