Wecome to the team, sounds like your a Texas at heart. Home is where your heart is.
I Corinthians 13..."...Love is patient,love is kind.It does not envy,it does not boast,it is not proud. It is not rude,it is not self-seeking,it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evilbut rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts,a/ways hopes, always preserveres. Love never fails..." And now these three remain faith,hope, and love. but the greatest of these is love"
Curt, you will always be a Texan, no matter where you are! You can take a Texan out of Texas, but you can't take Texas out of him! We are so happy to have you join us on this journey and we look forward to hearing more about your journey in a land that is different in foods and customs! It is a very special calling to be a missionary in a land far from home! God bless you and your family and remember...we are always here for you and are praying for you and your family!
Love and Blessings, ~Judy♡~

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths." Prov. 3:5&6
I hope you will forgive the fact that I am no longer living in Texas. My wife and I are originally from Kingwood, TX (Houston). But we became missionaries to the Czech Republic three years ago and we are living in Prague. But of course, we can't get Texas out of our blood and our memories.
In fact, it is because of the preparation to be missionaries that I gained so much weight. The dinners and lunches out, the busy schedule of working full-time while raising financial support, etc., messed up my workout routine. I gained 25 pounds during that time and maybe an additional 5 pounds when we settled into Prague.
Losing weight here can be a bit more difficult because they don't have "diet" food like Weight Watcher snacks, fat-free mayonnaise, etc, and rarely can you find "natural" food like whole wheat flour, brown rice and all. I'm having to go back to the basics: real fruits and vegetable, recipes without substitutes (e.g., fat-free mayo recipes don't cut it).
Now we are enjoying the cooler weather of Prague, the beautiful countryside and the quiet, pleasant Czech people. Maybe you know some of the Czech communities in Texas. If you know some Czech decendants, ask them to pray for the Czech Republic. It is one of the most atheistic countries in Europe. If you are interested in its spiritual condition, check out our mission's website and video. We would love to see this country won back for Christ.
