Well the fridge is empty and the bags are packed. We finished school this week, spent some time with friends and said goodbyes, did a lot in and outside the house to get ready to go, packed up…and were bored by the end of the week. It is time and we are ready. We are excited!
Tomorrow is our last day in Soroti. We look forward to Sunday worship in Obulle. They will be having communion for the first time in seven years! It will be hard to leave our church family but we are so thankful for all God is doing in and through them and we know God remains with them. At night we will have worship and a potluck (good thing cause our food is gone) with our team. It should be a nice way to say goodbye.
Monday morning we drive to Kampala (7 hours) with our teammates. I have a doctor’s appointment and ultra sound in the afternoon. I have to have a doctor’s letter to fly. Tuesday we will just enjoy the day with our kids and head to Entebbe in the evening where we will stay the night. Early Wednesday morning we will fly to London where we overnight. Thursday morning we will fly to Chicago then onto Grand Rapids. Yes, it is a long journey but we are looking forward to going.
We ask for your prayers as we say goodbye and then travel the next few days all the way to Michigan. Continue to pray for good health for everyone. We ended up putting Grace on an antibiotic for her sinus infection (she had neon yellow snot like I have never seen before!). Lydia still has a cold too but seems to be ok over all. Pray for Josh’s mom and family too. She is scheduled for back surgery the day after we arrive. Josh, his dad, and brother-in-law are heading to Wyoming to hunt two days after we arrive. So things maybe a bit crazy but we are thankful mom will be relieved of her pain soon.
I have to warn you that I wont have email at our house in MI and I may be enjoying all the “normal” things of life and being a “normal” mom for a while that I may not be journaling much. So don’t worry if the blog is blank for weeks at a time. However, I will try to give updates and post pictures to share all our fun times and all the ways God is at work while we are in MI.
Thanks everyone! May the Lord bless you and keep you.
