What Will You Miss?

Posted: July 24, 2017 by Patrice Miles in Miles In Missions, Missionaries, Patrice Miles, Prayer, SIM

When we were in Nigeria thinking about spending 3 months in the U.S. it seemed like that was such a long time to stay. It has gone by soooo fast and feels like we just got here. As you read this blog post we will have already started the first of three flights in our 24-hour travel over the ocean. Before we left we were asked over and over again “What will we miss the most from the U.S.A.” Here are the answers in order of importance.

Cason

  1. Internet (yes this was more important than family, I did ask.)
  2. Family and friends
  3. Food (Sushi)

Jolie

  1. Family and friends (sleepovers with cousins in particular.)
  2. Food (Cheese Dip and Chips)
  3. Netflix

Lenny

  1. Family
  2. Food (Mexican)
  3. Ease of everything. You can get so much accomplished so easily.

Patrice

  1. Family and Friends
  2. Sleeping in the Air Conditioning under a blanket.
  3. Food (Bakery items)
  4. Unlimited resources at your fingertips.
  5. The giving spirit of our community and how easy it is to ask and receive.

Saying goodbye is always bittersweet. We were able to visit with so many friends and family members but there was also so many we did not get to see. We are so sorry if we didn’t get time with you but you know who you are and you know our hearts are with you. Thank you for everyone that donated resources, time, money and for everyone that is praying and continues to pray for our family. We love you all….see you in 2 Years!

    Dear Patrice, Lenny, and Family

    Thank you for your wonderful newsletters! They are so interesting and it helps us to know how to pray. Your hearts must be full as you travel back to Nigeria. Enjoy settling in. I know the Lauritzens’ house. You will enjoy living on the compound. Hope you have a happy reunion with your dogs!\

    God bless you!

    Happy you and your beautiful family were able to spend time with family & friends, as well as refuel your bodies and spirit for all the good work for the Lord you do in Nigeria! Know that your Center City Baptist Church family continue to pray for you all! Prayers for the remainder of your return trip to Nigeria!

    Love from your sister in Christ, Linda Johnson
