Michelle and I have been asking ourselves repeatedly, "Have we forgotten anything? Did we get everything we needed on the list? Have we made all of the necessary arrangements?"
I think that we're about as prepared as we can be, and yet there is still so much that we can't plan for. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for us over the next two weeks. We've prayed and prepared, and all that is left to do is get on the plane!
Please keep praying that God will prepare the way for us. In so many ways He has already answered this prayer, but the preparation that we are depending on is in the hearts of the people that we'll be reaching. Pray for open doors into people's hearts. Pray for God to give us courage and boldness to share the Gospel in love and truth. Pray also for Jesus to speak to Emily, Daniel, and Timothy as they begin their first (of many) missionary journeys. We want them to see and experience the heart of Jesus as we venture forward as a family.
We're about 30 hours away from our departure from DFW, and we're counting down...
