Counting Down...

We are continuing to count down our departure and we are so excited we will be breathing Nairobi air in less than one month! Our good friends, The Hinrichs, have let us invade their space until our move. You know, the Lord has been so good. The Hinrichs have a lovely home where our kids can play in the backyard and front yard. We were living in an upstairs apartment that didn't allow for casual running in and out of the house. Josiah even cries when we have to go back to the apartment to clean because he thinks we are leaving The Hinrichs home!
We are so blessed to have nearly everything sold. Our last garage sale will be this Saturday at Debbie and Howard Oakes home. We are also hoping that our truck will sell in the next 30 days, so please be praying for that.
Jonathan gave his last Bible Study to the high schoolers and junior highers this last Sunday. The study was a great exhortation to the kids about going where God's called you and doing great things for God. At the end of the study Pastor Geoff had Jonathan and I come forward while the kids prayed for us. By the end of that prayer session, Jonathan and I were full of tears. The five years Jonathan has loved and invested into these kids lives were evident. We love our church and those kids so much, it will be hard to say goodbye.
The next few weeks are filled with doctor's appointments, lunch with friends and family and last minute things before we board our flight. It's amazing all the things that need to be in order before we can go. Like, what happens to our mail when we leave? haha...if you know than please let us know because we are stumped for now! haha!

Well, we hope you are well and thank you for your continued prayers and support.
