Welcome to the Hanham Family website.

PRAISE GOD for our wonderful visit to the USA!
After an absence of more than 2 years, we arrived back at the Evansville Indiana airport. After 30 hours of flight time and crossing 11 time zones, we felt jet-lagged but were still happy to be back.
We have been traveling a great deal to visit with family and friends. It was good to find that our dear friends, Peggy and Jerry, had our truck already serviced and ready for our cross-country travels.
Arriving in Oklahoma, we stayed at the home of our good friends, Butch and Marlene, while we visited our children and friends. Marlene’s dogs were especially glad to see Suzanna again.
Travelling to Arkansas, it was a joy to visit with son Pete and grandson Mason.
Returning to Oklahoma, we were delighted to meet for the first time our granddaughter Kaitlyn as we visited daughter Renee, son-in-law Michael, and son Ian.
After our time in Oklahoma, we planned to spend the night in Joplin MO, before continuing on to Kentucky. While driving to Joplin, we were delayed and heard on the news that a tornado had just struck the city, so we stopped in east Tulsa (about an hour away). Throughout the night it poured rain and hailed. The next day the Interstate was reopened and we drove through Joplin. Although it was 9:30am, the sky was dark as night and the rain still came down in sheets of water. We saw much devastation along the highway.
While passing through Kentucky, we stopped to see our friends Charles and Evelyn.
From Kentucky we traveled on to West Virginia to see family and friends. Finally we have managed to achieve a little rest from our hectic travel schedule at Suzanna’s sister’s home.
After attending a wonderful southern gospel concert by the Dove Brothers in West Virginia, we drove to Virginia to visit with cousin Steve.

It was so peaceful staying at Steve’s home, nestled amongst the hills with their herd of goats.
On Memorial Day weekend, Mamie and Jack hosted a fantastic family get-together with many of our favorite foods that we have missed while living in South Asia.
Included with us in this photo are sister Mamie and Jack; cousin Randal and Diane; cousin Rebecca, Dana, and Zoey; Aunt Margaret and Uncle Bill; cousin Jackie and Ron; cousin Cindy (from FL)
Please pray for us as we conclude our visit here and return to our South Asian home!

Trust in the Lord with your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
