7 Year Itch

April 28, 2001 seems like yesterday. It’s amazing how the years pass so quickly. As we said our vows that day Jess laughed at the part about sharing our possessions. What possessions? We lived that first year on not much more than love and faith. So much has changed in the past seven years and yet so much is still the same. We seem to have returned to where we started. We are, as we were then, caught up in the anxiety and excitement over the monumental change that is about to take place in our lives.

April 28, 2008 marks the beginning of another great adventure in our lives.  We will depart to a whole new world. At a time when so many marriages fall apart, ours will have to be stronger than ever.  We know that many challenges await us, but we have faced challenges before and God has seen us through them all and blessed us through them.

We hope to post often but know that even if there is a lag time that we are thinking of everyone we left back home.  It is an awesome feeling to be so loved that it makes it hard to leave.  We hope to see everyone when we return in August.  We love you!



  1. Happy Anniversary! You are in my prayers always, but especially today. I will be thinking and praying for you today for a safe trip! Good luck and God Bless you both!

  2. Happy Anniversary, Jess and Jon. Your journey has now begun. You’re both in our thoughts and hearts on day one and every day of your experience in Ethiopia. We love ya’ll!

  3. Take care and best wishes! I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Be safe and enjoy this great journey!
