Almost the LAST Sunset!!!

We have been so busy with travel and assignments that I've been MIA here for several weeks.  We have been to Wellington, then to Christchurch and we have just returned from a week in beautiful Tahiti.  And yes, we were really working......well most of the time.  The weather was perfect, the scenery magnificent and we took two extra days to celebrate the wonderful experiences we have had on our mission and take a break from our busy schedule.   (It was lucky for us that flights to Tahiti are only scheduled on certain days of the week, so we had no choice but to stay a few extra days.)  Photos from this trip will have to come later.  For now we are trying to cram 3 weeks of work into the few last days as we count down the number of sunsets we have left here in beautiful New Zealand.  And we have THREE!  Tomorrow we pick up our replacements at the airport, (at 5:30 am), and will have three days to train them, clean the flat and pack.  This photo is to remind me of the beautiful sunsets we have seen in the wonderful islands of the South Pacific.

It must be both sad and exciting for you at the moment. I bet you will be so happy to be close to your family again but will miss the beauty of the islands and their people. I'm sure you have done a great job for the church and the people of the South Seas. I will miss your beautiful photos of the area but I am sure you will give us more when you return home. Safe journey.

Wow, wow and WOW. What a beauty. I know this is a time of very strong mixed emotions, but you've done a wonderful work there and so many lives have been enriched by your service. Have a very safe trip and I'll not longer be able to think of you each night as I "pray for the missionaries serving throughout the world." Have a safe and wonderful trip home and GLORIOUS family reunion.

Holy God...it's been time for you to fly back again. Gosh I've missed out so much and I'm sorry about that. Trying to be more in blogland if I can. So I'm enjoying this spectaculaire view. Hope you and your husband have a save trip and make it a welcome back home again.
Wish you only good.
Soft hugs beautiful lady.
