We’re There!!

Well, after about 11 months of support-raising, we are pleased to announce that we are at 100% of our monthly support!!! It has been amazing to watch God work these past couple of weeks and to hear back from so many people about our monthly support needs! We are so blessed and humbled by all of your prayers and support! With the Lord bringing in our remaining monthly support needs, it also means that we were able to purchase plane tickets. So, our departure date for Zambia is January 15th out of Chicago. We feel so thankful and blessed by all of you, for your encouraging words, gifts, prayers, support, love and friendship.

Here are some prayer requests as we get ready these final weeks:

-That the Lord would give us sweet goodbyes with family and friends.

-That everything we need to get done would get done in a timely manner and without too much stress before we go.

-That our car would sell before we leave. (1998 Toyota Camry, 143,000 miles, manual, good condition, new brakes, AC, cruise, power windows, good gas mileage, $3,000).

-That we would get the rest of our bags safely over to Appleton, WI and then down to Chicago for departure on the 15th.

-That our bags and us would all get to Lusaka safely, timely and all together.

    (The patchwork squares alongside these responses are very appropriate as the Lord carefully pieces together your own Dearth life-quilt.)
