Ok, so here's the deal.
This blog is not really about ministry. As you can tell since, well, I don't talk about it. This is a blog that is just for me to be me. (As frightening as that is, I know. Please don't run away.) But I thought that while I have your undivided attention, and while I can feel your curiosity emanating toward me through the interweb waves, I will give you an update on what God is doing.
Because I am all about the glory givin'. Oh, yes indeedy-do!
So, without further ado, 'The Update'.
WE HAVE A GENERAL DEPARTURE DATE!!
Now, don't get your knickers in a twist.
It will be sometime during the week of October 14th. This year. 2007. As in 65 days from now!! Wowza. And you wanna know the coolest part?
God did all of it. He is so awesome.
So, I will be for the next 63 1/2 days packing, sorting, and organizing all of our belongings so we can MOVE TO AFRICA. WOW!!
I will need your earnest prayers.
Because the flight there is in the range of 16 hours. Or so. Give or take. And I have three children 6 and under. Who are active. Obedient, but active.
When I have my head together a little more, I will be sharing details of all God has done. It's A LOT. So, watch for that post. I may have to do it before I actually get my head together, because that act in and of itself could take YEARS.
Needless to say, please pray now for cheap airfare. We would like airline tickets for less than $733.00 one way per adult. God knows where the cheap flights are, and we would like you to petition Him on our behalf. Thanks Saints!!
And while I'm at it, I thought I would ask for some friendly advice.
Leave me a comment with your ideas on how to keep my kids busy on the airplane. I will take any/all advice. Unless your advice includes sedation and/or duct tape.
Post away!! I will look forward to what you have to say!! God bless you!
