Six Months Later…

Can you believe it’s been six months? I find it rather hard to grasp. In some ways it’s seems like I’ve always been here…and life in the states is like a life that someone else lived a long long time ago.


And now, all of a sudden, there’s only a week left. Life does things like that….one era ends, another one starts, often with little to no warning beforehand.




I have so many posts I want to write, some I have started, others are just ideas. Maybe someday they will see the light of cyberspace…but for now the inability of my computer to connect to the internet limits my capability to publish stories and pictures. So I am reduced to my phone, which is also being cranky.


I know that you all would like to see more pictures and read more stories, and I would love to show them…but it will have to wait.




Rest content in the fact that I have had a wonderful time here…one of the best times of my life and also one of the most challenging times of my life. The Lord’s mercy truly is great and endures forever.

So…anyway…although this part of the overseas adventure is nearly over, I am not nearly ready to go back yet. So I decided to travel some more.


I am planning to travel through some more countries in eastern Europe…hopefully I will get as far as Austria…but it depends. I will be working and living on farms that I have contacted through an online program, and I am very excited about this next adventure!!!


Wifi will be largely unavailable to me much of the time, I expect…so don’t worry if you don’t hear from me for awhile…I will probably still be alive, doing something interesting somewhere. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚


I don’t know exactly when I will get back…maybe another six months?? I don’t know.


I know you all aren’t having lives as interesting or as adventurous as mine. I feel a little sorry for you, but not too much.


After all, there’s no one to blame but yourself. πŸ™‚


Seriously though, I know it probably sounds cliche…but I have learned and realized so much about myself, about life, about the Bible and most importantly about the Savior.


I wouldn’t have traded this time for anything…not even a wife. And coming from me, that’s really saying something. πŸ™‚ Truly, to seek the Lord, to follow and obey Him is my heart’s desire.

  1. Dear Timothy,
    So good to hear from you and I love all your pictures. You always look so happy when you are surrounded by children! Thank you for letting us hear from you! Glad you feel that this time in Albania has been good and profitable! Yes! It was very kind of you to send a post even when the wifi is balky and even your phone is uncooperative. Please have a wonderful spring and summer! You probably have enough stories to keep you talking for a long, long time, and in another 6 months you will have enough to keep you talking for a lifetime! We love you and are happy that you can live this dream!
    Love, Grandma

  2. Just prayed for you on our way by your place, so it was cool to get home and receive this!

  3. Well, Timothy, I hoped to see you soon…but I guess that hope is vain! May God bless and go with you in all your travels! think of you often! I came to Dallas’ meeting… and missed seeing you! 😦 but had a LOVELY time!
    Blessings…. Carolyn
