the future

i don't know what i will do when we go back to portland. i think we'll go back sometime this summer.

zack is going to go back to college, and then he wants to preach the good news of Jesus and plant churches that will plant churches. he's been listening to the bible a lot. and sermons. he's also talking about helping music teachers find students.

sarah is planning on helping zack do all that. she's looking forward to being with her friends and having a house to make into a home for them and make it a nice place for other people be. she says she wants to make it 'hospitable'.. she says "a place for people to be and grow and be loved".

fen says he's going to find a closet at their house and write a book.

but i don't know what i'm going to do. i've never lived any one place very long. i almost don't remember peru very well. i remember being in amy's suitcase for a while. and then i met zack and sarah. maybe i'll practice my photography. i like taking pictures of things and people. and fen. but he doesn't know that. i think he's very photogenic.

it is autumn today

today is the first day of autumn. everywhere there are beautiful trees. it reminds me of when i met zack and sarah. it was a rainy day and the leaves on the trees were gold and red.
today is sunny. it still feels like summer. but the trees look like autumn.

today is the first day of orientation for the new company. we got to seattle late last night. a very friendly and very talkative cab driver drove us to the hotel where GTI had sandwiches waiting for us and a nice room. zack and sarah were touched by the thoughtfulness (we sure were hungry!).

i stayed in the room while they went to class at 6am. the cleaning lady was a little surprised to see me. fortunately i speak spanish, and i assured her that it was okay for me to take a bath by myself, even though i am rather short.

this evening when zack and sarah got back they were talking about how nice everyone was.. and how competent. i had to look that word up. it means that they are good at what they do. zack said that people seem to really enjoy their work. i think that's important.

we have two more days of orientation. then on friday we get our new truck!

a new company

sarah and zack have decided to leave covenant and work for a company called gordon trucking. it's also called GTI. they say that gti is located near portland and that we'll be able to stop by home more often. they also say that we'll drive more miles and that the people there are really nice.

next week we'll turn in our truck and stay with sarah's dad in santa cruz for a week. then we'll go to the new company.

i'll post pictures of our new tractor when we get it. it's going to be blue.....

cooking with our engine

Zack and Sarah cooked an amazing steak dinner on their engine today.
We were swimming at the bottomless lakes near Roswell and afterward they wrapped up a big steak and some mushrooms and carrots and onions (with some seasonings and water) and stuck it in the engine. Then we drove to Odessa, Texas. It was a three hour drive.
