One Month!

It's been a busy few weeks, so we haven't blogged much.

Leaving for Rwanda is getting closer and closer. As of now, we still haven't booked our airline tickets. We can't do this until we at least have that amount covered in our fund raising. I did find a good deal on tickets, and it looks like we could leave January 13th, which is one month from today!

We've received two financial updates, and are at around $3000. It's an exciting start, but it also makes us pause and wonder if we can raise more than double that in the next 30 days, or less.

I was feeling very positive and excited after the first update, and after the second one I realized this isn't going to be easy. If we raise the money we need it will be for the glory of God, and not anything we can say or do.

Please pray as we continue to make final preparations. We got our vaccinations on Thursday: Hepatitis A, Tetanus, Yellow Fever, and Typhoid. We've made other preparations such as purchasing our travel luggage, backing up our laptop and getting it fixed, and getting a camera to take with us.

We are getting so excited about this upcoming adventure, and are trusting the Lord that all our needs will be met prior to us leaving.
