June 16 to August 8, 2009 the Burkholder family was in USA. Our primary purpose was to renew our yearly Thai visas. Needless to say our time in America included a whirlwind of activities. There was the great blessing of Burkholder family time. All our children and grandchildren were together for a few days at a cabin in the mountains of central PA. The grand children, as well as all of us, just loved a day at Knoebels Family Amusement Park. Then there also were the tent meetings in Philadelphia and all those dear young people that came into the city to teach VBS. Naomi & I also very much enjoyed flying to Indiana with my mother (84) for my nephews wedding. Then there were also the many MTM presentations as well as preaching opportunities. All total we did 12 different MTM presentations in four different states. Our hearts are overwhelmed with the interest and support of MTM and our family. The blessings that were ours are innumerable. A great big heart felt thank you to all of you who blessed us in so many different ways. We are not at all worthy. But freely we have received and freely we will give for Gods glory among the nations.
