Bro. & Sis. Chamberlin arrived Friday night about 8:00 p.m. We had planned on giving them that first night to settle in and rest but as we shewed them to their room, conversations started and continued on until ..Oh, 11:00 p.m. We were so happy to have them here finally and both sides had so many questions, it was impossible to wait. Mrs. Chamberlin has so much knowledge and stories to tell it was like tapping into an oil field and finding a gusher. :) We soaked in every word.
I have to tell you about Kent ( my son). Our kids have shared our excitement about meeting the Camberlins, but I had no idea the reaction it would invoke on Kent when I called him in from out side and said, "Kent, The Chamberlins are here." He let out a whoop and started running and yelling to his cousin, "THE CHAMBERLINS ARE HERE! THE CHAMBERLINS ARE HERE!" Then he ran into the house, as if Santa had arrived and, much to my big eyed wonder, climbed up beside Mrs. Chamberlin (practically on her lap), wrapped her arm around him, and sat there for the next hour or so patting her hand and hugging on her while we talked. It was a greeting and a half.
We were able to spend the next three days with them, and in that time we learned so much stuff, it was enough to make our heads swirl. Everyone of us enjoyed every minute of it. They are wonderful people and we can't wait to get the four of us over there and start helping out.
