Down to the wire!!!!

So, remember how we said we’re leaving on Saturday?  If you’re not sure which Saturday, it’s the one that’s a day from now.  And even though we’ve been working like crazy trying to get things ready, we’re still not completely packed! We do have the essentials, like clothes and underwear etc. but it’s all about the little things.  These little things are so pesky!  They keep cropping up in our minds like weeds.  Deodorant, toothbrushes, measuring cups, socks, and the list goes on!  If you’re packing for a long trip, or a big move, I suggest making a list and actually using it (the using it part was our downfall). 🙂  Google docs is a great way to do this because multiple people can see and add to it.


This is the beginning of our packing process.  Yes, that is a 12 pack of Mac-n-cheese 😀

But anyways… it’s been a great, albeit crazy week!  We celebrated Nick’s birthday almost everyday this week, sold my car (tear), packed lots, and Nick and his dad built a Purple Martin house (those are birds in case you were wondering).

Well, I have to finish packing, so it’s ta ta for now 🙂  Hopefully our next post will come all the way from Taipei, Taiwan!! Please pray for our trip and our culture shock.  But more importantly, please pray that God will prepare the place that we are going and the people that we will be meeting.  Please pray for His Divine appointments and for us to have Godly courage, and the words to say to share the Good News!

Thanks for reading!
