Come See Us on the 14th!

It is so nice to be with family for the last few weeks, and we’ve been able to connect with friends at Trinity, and His House, and at our friend Kelly’s small group. Also, I celebrated my birthday on the 26th, our anniversary was yesterday, and Emi’s 1st Birthday is TODAY! There’s so much going on, and so many people we want to see in the short time we are here in the States and not enough time to get everywhere, so........ you can come see us!

YOU ARE OFFICIALLY INVITED to Dessert Night with the Deetlefs on Sunday, November 14th at 6:30 p.m. at Sharptop Cove in Jasper, GA. For those of you who knew us then, this is the location of the Young Life camp where we got married 5 years ago. We know it is a busy time of year, so we want to give you fair notice that we would REALLY love it if you could come to this evening. It’s free dessert and coffee and a time for us to share pictures and a few stories of our last two years in Swaziland, Africa.  I will also be singing for the first time in a long time, so don’t miss that. :}
Many of you have been partnering with us with your prayers and finances, and we want you to see what YOU have been a part of, and hear what is next for us in South Africa. Feel free to bring a friend along too –the more the merrier.  More details and directions below.  Please RSVP to by Nov. 10th so we know how much dessert to prepare. 
We love you and want to see you, so please come!
Jodi, Marius & 1 year old Emi
