Africa or Bust

4 Dec

It is 12:10am.  packing-001Andrew and I are almost done packing. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Andrew said it might be a good idea to stay up really late so that we can try to get on East Africa time.  I don’t know if it will work, but I sure am tired.

We have to be at the church office in 5 hours.  I think I will try to get some sleep.

FUNDRAISING UPDATE:

Thanks to so many of you, we raised more than the amount of money we needed to fund the trip.  We are now able to bless the family we are going to see.  Andrew and I can never thank you enough for helping us make this trip possible. 

Here’s how you can pray for us while we are gone:

Pray for health for the team and the family we are going to see

Pray all our luggage gets there when we do.  Otherwise we have to waste time waiting at the airport where flights only come in once a day. 

Pray for safe travels, physical safety while we are there.

Pray we will be effective in our purpose:  to help, encourage, and refresh this family.

Pray that the people of East Africa will be open to the gospel.

I will try to keep updates by blogging while we are there.  THANKS AGAIN!!

Life List Check-off

4 Dec

I checked something off my life list last night:  see Celine Dion in concert.

For those of you that are making fun of me right now, I don’t care.  I’m a vocalist and I love great vocalists.  And, thus, I love Celine.  She is effortless.

Andrew dozed off a few times, but he loves me so he was willing to take me.  Great guy.  I had an awesome time.
