We Are Coming Home!

Posted: April 12, 2017 by Patrice Miles in Lenny Miles, Miles In Missions, Nigeria, Patrice Miles, SIM

It’s home assignment time again so we are coming home! Well, is it really home anymore? After more than 3 ½ years in Nigeria home has truly become Lenny, Patrice, Cason and Jolie. We are so excited to get to come back and see family, friends and supporters. It has been 1 ½ years since we have touched U.S. soil, unless you count the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria. Cason is at least a foot taller and Jolie is not a little girl anymore.

A lot of traveling, doctor’s appointments, dentist appointment, dinners, events, and trying to catch up with everyone we love. We always want to see everyone but seem to not be able to do it all. We will arrive May 1st and plan to return back to Nigeria on July 24th for the kids to start their new school at Hillcrest on August 9th.

After that we will stay in Louisville for the month of May before heading to Bluffton SC to meet with some of our supporters. After Bluffton we head to Charlotte for SIM debriefing and then off to Porter Ranch, CA. In Porter Ranch, we have been asked to help as camp counselors for a high school camp that my brother leads. Then we are back to Louisville for only a few weeks in July and then back to Nigeria.

Mark you calendars for a few events so we can see you and share some amazing videos Lenny has put together from our time in Nigeria.

    We would love to see you when you come through Charlotte. Richard will be on the flip side, but Brian especially would be blessed by some time with Cason. Please let me know if we can meet up. We could do pizza at our house, just let the boys play video games in the SIM Kids house or all go out to McDonald’s. I don’t care. Brian just needs some friend time. Thanks.
