To our friends, family, and brothers and sisters in Christ,

Our first term is over and we have survived! We made a video to commemorate our time here in Cameroon. Enjoy it and read more about our plans below.
By God's grace we have learned two languages (although we still have a lot more to learn!), started our linguistic analysis, spent years seeking to understand and catalog Bakoum culture, and have done extensive work with children. We are all at the same time thankful, sad to leave, excited to go back to the States, and tired.

We are planning to arrive in Colorado Springs on March 15th to spend some time with Dave's parents and get over jetlag. We then plan to drive out to California on the 21st of March to spend some time with my (Stacey's) parents. On April 2nd we hope to arrive in Dallas which is where we will be living.

We will be attending the Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics where we will complete our MA‘s in Bible Translation / Applied Linguistics. I will be writing a thesis on a tonal analysis of the Bakoum language and Dave will write his thesis on discourse in Bakoum. We are excited to start our studies under such knowledgeable, godly professors and we are confident that a robust understanding of this language will aid in translating the Bible well.

The children will finish their current school year with their teacher, Megan (who is with us in Cameroon), and then will start at a local charter school in August. We plan to return to Cameroon in August 2018.

In Dallas, we look forward to returning to our church, Grace Church Frisco.

We want to see you!
We are very excited to see all the friends that we can. We also would LOVE to speak at your churches about our experiences on the field and about the Lord's heart for missions. All that to say, if you would like us to visit you or would like us to speak at your church/small group/VBS/etc please respond to this email and let us know. Once we hear from a good number of people, we'll start making an itinerary of our travels and be in touch.

Re-entry and Kids
Take a look at a blog I wrote talking about helping our kids adapt to American culture: From the Bush to the Burbs: MK Re-entry
