Update from Forbess furlough

Well, we are still at it!

We have been to three states and have been blessed beyond belief! God is so good! Reconnecting with family and making memories that will last a life-time. The Forbess family unplugged retreat was wonderful and the time in Hot Springs Village with the Labowski's was as close to perfect as it gets.

Yesterday we had a wonderful time in Searcy, AR. We had the opportunity to meet the Chalenburg's, a family that is going to be in Cochabamba this summer and stay a little over a year, learning language and working with our team. We also met the Bower's, who are looking into the possibilites of working with our team. They were both wonderful family and a blessing to be with in Searcy. We staying with the Sandoval Jrs. and spent time with the Richardsons, the Hooks, Michelle, and made a new friend, Kaylee (sorry I don't know how to spell that). A true miracle to go back to the place were Jeff and I met and reflect on the blessings of 9 1/2 years of marriage. God is awesome!

Tonight we are in Olive Branch, Mississippi. Tomorrow we will be at Friendship Church of Christ. Jeff will do the preaching and teaching and I will try to sit pretty and keep the kids in-line :)

Hope everyone is doing great!

Please pray for the celebration of the 3 year anniversary of our church in Cochabamba that will be going on tomorrow.

God bless!
Katie, Jeff, Jubilee and Malakai Forbess
