Reuben is Home!!!!!

I know that this post is long overdue... but we have been crazy busy:)

 Mom, Dad, Matthew, and Marie went to pick Reuben up on the 11th of July. While they waited they went to the Mall of America. Here Daddy, Marie, and Matthew are in front of the sign.
Waiting in the Minneapolis airport...Anticipation is mounting:)

Reuben's plane is taking a long time!!

He's here!!! Marie, running to greet her brother. They were all a little excited.

First hugs with Dad.

Marie did not want to leave or let go of her brother's hand.

Even though Reuben had stayed up for 48 hours he still wanted to drive home the next day. In Taiwan Reuben did not have any opportunity to drive, so he has been driving a lot since he has been home:)

And here is what we have done since Reuben has been home:)..just kidding. Though we have done a lot of talking, we have served together(Back Home Days, and a Funeral), weeded together, frozen beans together, gone to a wedding together... you get the idea. One thing that I have learned since Reuben has been gone, is to appreciate your family that God has given you. Accept them as they are, love them, forgive them, and learn from them. You never know what God has in store for your siblings, or your parents. Be thankful for your family!!!!


  1. Thank you for sharing him with us yesterday! After listening to Reuben on Sunday, I think teaching, or maybe preaching, is something God might want him to do. He's so good at it!

  2. Praise the Lord for Reuben's safe arrival home! I'd love to hear how the trip went!
