We recently took a little road trip as a family to say good bye to some fellow missionaries who are moving away. The Helgrens have been ministering about three hours West of us, so going there and back in one day was doable. Considering we rarely ever leave a one mile radius of our house, the kids and I were ready for a bit of break in the routine!
The Helgren family has three children, stair stepped older and between my oldest three. We are certainly going to miss the Helgrens in the Eastern Province! We’ve made a lot of good memories with them during the years we’ve ministered in the same general area of Zambia.
On our day trip, I looked behind me to see our wonderfully full back seat and had to get a picture. Isn’t this the cutest little box of sardines you ever did see? 🙂
There’s something about a backseat bursting at the seams that reminds me that good gifts come from above!
