Getting Ready to Leave

In two days we'll be leaving for Africa for 11 weeks. We're excited, tired, and a little anxious. We've been getting things together, making last minute preparations, spending time with family and friends, and trying to finish up our requirements pre-arrival. So, it's been hectic to say the least. But we're looking forward to what God has in store for us and sharing that with you.

I just want to take a moment to thank everyone for their love and support through these past few months of preparation. I know it's been difficult and we appreciate every concern, meal, guidance, warning, financial blessing, service, and everything in between. Most of all we appreciate your prayers, and we are honored and blessed to know that you'll be lifting us up while we are away from our home, family, and country of origin. Know that we are in God's hands and we will be recieving much training while there as well as giving our all and laying down more and more of our lives to the Lord each day. Feel free to leave us messages of encouragement here as comments to our posts. We hope to share what is going on with us weekly or every other week. We're not really sure how frequent we will have and how the connection will be so no promises, that is Africa.

We'll miss you and be thinking about you and more importantly, we'll be praying for you all the time and especially as a small group on Sunday afternoons 2pm EST. Our time zone will be 6 hours ahead by the way, so it will be 8pm for us. We love you and may God bless you for all you've given in our support.

Darryl, Meg, and baby
