our plane finally landed at ohare an hour late, but we were just happy to be home. mom and dad were waiting for us. it sure was good to see them. but what's this, i can see my breath outside. weren't we just in the jungle a few days ago? isn't this the middle of april? what's going on here?
after a wonderful meal at chicago joe's, one that was actually full of flavor, we arrived home. mom and dad had come over and set the furniture back up for us and cleaned the apartment and filled the fridge with food. they're such wonderful parents. it is so nice to be home.
now we start the search for jobs. i have sent off a resume to Willow Creek Chicago. they are looking for a part-time administrative assistant, a job that i believe would be perfect for me. ismael has begun the long, tedious task of researching companies and available jobs that interest him. please keep us in your prayers that God would lead us to the places He has for us.
we would both like to send our heartfelt thanks to you all. we have been encouraged by your thoughts and prayers for the last 3 months. and thank you all for understanding why we had a small wedding. the money saved helped us take this trip of a lifetime. we thank the Lord for a safe journey, for his continual guidance and protection. He revealed Himself to us over and over. without Him, this wouldn't have been possible.
May the Lord bless you all.
Ismael and Melanie Ruiz
