A big change is coming to our family in the next couple months. Our furlough has been moved to January-July 2014. We head to Denmark November 1st for a short visit before going to the States. I do miss McDonald's, malls, and Starbucks. But most of all I miss my family and our sending church. We are excited to be able to spend some time with them. :)
During that time we will be spending about a week in Denmark. The reason we are taking the extra time in Denmark is, that we are planning on moving to Denmark to attend a three year language school in Aalborg. We have not been able to get help from the language school here in Greenland. They tell Marty that he has to know Danish or Greenlandic to attend. Well, without a teacher it has very hard to learn them on his own.
Marty spends several hours studying just to get up and forget it. I am proud of Marty with the way he has tried to learn on his own.
Please pray for us as we make this huge move! Our hearts are sad to be leaving Greenland. We don't always understand why things happen, or how The Lord works, but we are willing to do whatever the Lord wants us to do.
There are several Greenlanders in Denmark that we desire to work with while we are there. We know that without knowing the languages we can not have a ministry.
This has not been an easy decision or a hasty one. We have had a lot of counsel and even more prayer!
Thank you for your prayers for us as we start to get things together for this move.
