December Blessings!

It's been a super-busy month so far, but also a super-blessed one!  Let me share via fotos...

 The month started out with some great friends helping Glenn put up the ceiling in the back side of our basement!  Thanks Dave, Doug, Chris and Junior!!!
That same day we, the four of us, went to our favorite Christmas Tree Farm and got our tree!  Great family time!  We thank God for great kids!
Then we had the blessing of having TWO friends from Spain stay with us for awhile - TerriLynn - who's been a friend for awhile - and our new friend - Laura!  What a wonderful time we had speaking Spanish, laughing, and learning about each other's culture and language differences!  Rachel and Josh BOTH got to meet "the girls/las chicas" - but we only got a pic with Rachel!  Fun!

Thank you God for family and friends!

Thanksgiving/Giving Thanks!

Yes - I'm thanking God for my family!  What a wonderful Thanksgiving we had together.  What a wonderful family God has given me.  Their sacrificial love was so evident to me this past week...they are fully supporting Glenn's and my move overseas...again.  It is bittersweet moving overseas this time...leaving our wonderful kids, Rachel and Josh, behind - in college- thankfully both in PA...leaving my Dad, who moved to PA 2 years ago to be near us...leaving my amazing sister and her husband and my great brother and his wife...leaving my awesome nephews and nieces...yet they want us to go, because they know God is calling us to go.  Thank you God for my family!

Gissela sent a new picture from our time in Ecuador!

Pablo, Lourdes and their youngest daughter, Estefany, with us in Ecuador !

Pictures like this one make us long to be in Ecuador...please pray for our co-workers as they wait 5 1/2 more months for the Meyers to return to come alongside of them in the work in Cayambe, and six more months until we arrive!  Please pray for our house to sell and our one-time outgoing expense need to be raised so we CAN leave for Ecuador in late May!  Pray too for our hearts and for our families as we begin the goodbye process...again.  Thanks!

Anybody wanna buy a house?!?!?!?!

In order to get to Ecuador in late May, we need to sell our house!  To best use God's money, we'd like to sell it by ourselves...and our realtor is totally supportive!  We have until the Super Bowl (1st week of February) to sell it on our own...so PLEASE PASS THE WORD!  Here are the basics:

House For Sale By Owner - Exton, PA/Marchwood
3 BR, 2 bath, 4/10 acre
Please contact Glenn Wittmann at 610.594.0520 or glenn.wittmann@crossworld.org

Thanks for partnering with us to get us to Ecuador!  God bless!

First-Time Blogger!

Hi!  Well, I did it...or I'm doing it...I'm blogging!

We decided that when God called us to somewhere new, that we'd do something new...so I created a blog!

God has allowed us to serve Him in the Dominican Republic for MANY years....some of those full-time while living there, and some of those part-time while living here in Exton, PA - bringing teams down with us!  But NOW we're heading to Cayambe, Ecuador...just northwest of Quito...and we're excited!  (we'll tell you more about that soon!)

SO...we'll SOON be sending out our LAST (we think!) paper newsletter/prayer letter (Wittmann Sampler) and we'll be beginning an email newsletter/prayer letter with the same name!  Glenn and I still each have our own facebook accounts, but some of our family and friends aren't on facebook and would like to see our pictures...thus this blog!  :)

Enjoy...feel free to give advice...and PLEASE pray for us as we have MUCH to do before we move, God-willing, at the end of May 2011!   Yes, that's in 7 months!  Until the next blog....
