Well, 2013 is in the history books, and although we're glad to greet the new year, it's fun to look back and see where last year went...since it seemed to go by extremely fast.
So, Here's the Cliffnotes version of Johnson2013...
And, our first 5 missionaries started their Visayan language and culture study in the new program.

2013...you were a very busy year, but a good one. Here's to praying for an awesome 2014 as we head to the States for a year. We have some excited grandparents and relatives and friends over in the US, and we have some extremely excited kiddos over here--ready for a joyful reunion.
Thank you God for a very healthy and productive year---and happy 2014 everybody!
