“Home”…it’s such a special word. It can conjure emotions of comfort, safety, and peace. For missionaries, this word is elusive. Is home where we were born? Is it where we were raised? Is it where we live now? Sometimes it’s all three (and much more.) We landed in America, the country we’ve called “home” for most of our lives, on May 7, 2013. Over the next month we traveled through Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, and North Carolina visiting friends, reuniting with family, and thanking those who’ve faithfully supported us over the last four years. We finally settled in New Bern, NC on June 9th. We’re “home”…for now. Over the next year we will be traveling throughout the Southeast sharing our story. Our third child is due around November 27. Please pray for a safe pregnancy and delivery. Please also pray for us as we once again get accustomed to life in America. Here is our information for this next year: Joshua Crowe 1308 Kimberly Road New Bern, NC 28562 615-594-7612
