The Jacksons: Wallace, Amanda and kids Taylor, Jackson and Josiah(he's in bed). Wallace is a Captain with the United States Army stationed at Ft. Polk, Louisiana. We were encouraged and inspired by their love to do ministry among the men and women in the service. Wallace will be deploying this year to Afghanistan, so be in prayer for them.
Our trip through the south was an incredible time for us to visit friends we haven't seen in awhile, to say goodbyes, and to receive encouragement from strong believers in the faith. In this group we have done missions with some of these couples in South Africa, Nepal and have been a part of other's lives as they have gone and done missions in places like southeastern China and among the Gaelic people of Ireland. We received much encouragement from every place we stayed. We are feeling more and more ready every day to take the big trip over the pond. The only people we don't have pictures with are the Bankstons and Deanna. Keith and Michelle Bankston were friends of ours from college whom we love dearly. Deanna was our beloved summer missionary that lived with us the second half of last summer. Thanks everyone for making it a good trip for us!
