OUR FIRST MEETING


We joined together at  my house tonight to discuss what we needed to pack, when to start taking our meds,  and ALL of the other garb that goes along with packing for a trip to Africa. We have had our immunizations. Passports and airline tickets are  in hand!  It would be an understatement to say that we are all "out of our minds" excited about this journey!  I have already packed two large suitcases full of towels, sheets, and Lord knows what else that Katie left for me to bring.  We began our night in prayer for our sweet Katie.  If you read her blog today, you know that she is struggling......so we just lifted her up.  I have soccer balls, little girls underwear, coffee, mac n cheese, protein bars, beef jerky, and peanut butter all headed to my house by means of gracious "givers" for us to take to Katie and her kids.  We will be leaving on March 12th, and returning on the 21st.......stay tuned.....hold on to the reins, gonna be a BUMPY ride!

Might b 2 late 2 suggest, but, beach balls travel really, really well...and, all the kids will love blowing them up and bouncing them around...they take very little room:) Just a thought...
