Indonesia and 1 Year Anniversary

Hello, everyone! 
I haven't posted in a few weeks because Andy has been out of town and there hasn't been much to say!  But, he returned to the states after 15 days in Indonesia, and it has been great to have him back.  He and his team shared the Gospel with many Muslims who were searching for truth and saw many people healed of physical ailments.  There were several people who, after hearing the story of the redeeming love of Jesus, prayed to receive him in their hearts.  Overall, many many people in the largest Muslim nation in the world were touched by God.  Andy had a really good time--he enjoyed spending time with our friends on the team and loving on the people of Indo.  Here are a few pictures of his trip:

Needless to say, we were happy to be reunited on August 3rd.  5 days later, on August 8th, we celebrated our 1 year anniversary.  Wow!  How did the time fly?  We both feel like this year came and went so quickly, but it was jam-packed with so much goodness.  Some memorable moments:  apple picking for my birthday, Thanksgiving in CT with my family, Christmas in NJ with Andy's family, my missions trip to Haiti, Caroline visiting in February (and seeing her back pain healed by God!), Nick living with us for a month (fun!), taking a cooking class together in Cambridge, accepting an offer to help plant a church in Arizona in 2011...  and so much more!  We celebrated our anniversary a day early by spending the day in Kennebunkport, ME and going to dinner at The Melting Pot.  We had a great day!  Here are some pictures from Maine.  (Unfortunately, we didn't get any photos of us together!  Ironic.)
Pretty flowers as we walked along Ocean Avenue.

To end, I just wanted to post a yummy side dish I made a few weeks ago.  Roasted corn, zucchini, and squash with garlic and olive oil.  It is a great way to use all those delicious summer veggies!
I added parmesan cheese, tomatoes, avacadoes and balsalmic vinegar.  It can be served hot or cold!
