I guess doing a post about posting will make me more accountable to actually do it!
We will see.
I also just love the chance to have a whole day to take some good close-up pictures of them cause they are so adorable.

First of all, the Spies gave us this box from Bolivia as a thank you and it is just beautiful.
Secondly, I wanted to mention that the reason the Spies were on their way home is because they will be there to fund raise for the association that they founded with Bolivians in 2009. The name of it is Roots Association and its mission is to help support national Bolivian missionaries, pastors and seminary students. Something that we learned and that the Spies were inspired by is that there are a lot of amazing Bolivian pastors and missionaries that are doing a great job in their ministries and making a small amount of resources go a long way. Roots comes along side these individuals and ministries.
Here is the vision and mission of Roots from their website...
Vision: We dream to see strong Bolivian Christian ministries forming authentic disciples who reflect the character and priorities of Christ.
Mission: To facilitate training, provide resources and mobilize funding so that Bolivian Christian ministries are empowered to fulfill their own God given visions.
This is an amazing ministry so check out their website!
(It is also one of the links on the right hand side of our blog)
It was so much fun to show them around our favorite places and introduce them to family and friends that we had told them so much about. But the best part of having them here was just to have time together to talk, hang out, see their girls and discuss anything and everything like we used to in Bolivia. And that funny thing happened like it always does with good friends when it doesn't matter how much time has passed because you always pick up like no time has passed at all. We all stayed at Linnea and Cam's (thanks guys!) which worked out great and all the Spies and Johnson girls loved it!
Here are some pics from the week...
It was a wonderful week. And although it is always very sad to say goodbye to the Spies, we know it's a "see you later" not really a goodbye. I guess it's our turn now so the next Spies/Johnson extravaganza will either be in Bolivia or Australia. Looking forward to it already!
