The time has come!!!!
So here we are less than 24 hours from leaving on our first vision trip and we are super excited! We have been waiting for this time on our journey to finally know where God wants us to be specifically. We have known to what country He called us, but that was really about it - until NOW!!! We are human so we have thoughts and ideas going in - but we all agree that we have to remain open to what God will show us and confirm with us as we make these trips, knowing that He will reveal to each of us maybe in different ways where we are to be. So we will bathe it in much prayer after making both the trips and reveal it then. I was thinking of how these days people have those revealing parties where they reveal the gender of their baby - well we have been almost 3 years of waiting to know the gender of ours - lol so maybe one of those cool parties will be well deserved :-)
Please keep us in your prayers over the next 10 days as we explore, travel and ask a million questions while we are there. Most important prayer request would be for clarity for all 3 of us. We appreciate so much the encouraging words, phone calls and sweet gifts we have been given this week and we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We pray that each of you will know how much we truly love and appreciate you. I will try to keep the blog updated as much as possible, but I am not sure just how much time or availability I will have. But I plan to keep the facebook page updated if nothing else - so check there too.
As you know we have our 2nd trip about 2 weeks after we return and as of right now, we are still $1200 short and unable to purchase the plane tickets. I am praying that the cost of the tickets do not go up too much since we will be so late in buying them. The closer you get to the travel date and purchase the tickets the cost usually is dramatically higher. But without the money in hand, we can not buy them before we leave. Join us in praying for provision for that immediate need. We have seen God provide this whole journey and we trust He will continue to do so.
Thanks for following us, praying for us, encouraging us, supporting us and most of all loving us!!!
