My Wife

Whoa! How long has it been since I blogged? Honestly, even though I’ve had a lot on my mind to blog about, Language School keeps me pretty whipped. Even as I type this, I should be studying for an 80 word vocabulary quiz I have tomorrow morning. Sprachschule gehts sehr gut. Wir sind fast half fertig! (Language school goes really well. We are almost half way done!) But, with all the ministry, language, transition, blah blah blah, I wanted to take a break and talk about Caryn. On the 16th, we will celebrate our 16th anniversary! Last Friday, as we were strolling on a street in North Hamburg, enjoying the weather and walking arm in arm, we began talking about life. We were speaking about what great kids we have, and how we could not have imagined that our lives would look ANYTHING like they look today. And, we both agreed, it is by God’s grace that we are where we are. I also believe, though, that it is because I am married to the most amazing woman on the face of the planet! She manages our home, coordinates travel, keeps the kids organized, AND puts up with me. Caryn Bishop is a full time language student, is working on undergraduate hours, lives 7,000 Km from her family, makes cookies for her neighbors, builds relationships with teachers, makes it to the market every week for fresh fruit and flowers. I could go on and on about how amazing she is. Never in my life, though, could I have imagined all the ways I’ve been blessed by her. Thank you, Caryn, for 16 amazing years. I look forward to 60 more!
