Last time we posted we asked you to pray with us, and God surely came through!! Mike's work visa was FINALLY approved. We have the monthly financial support committed verbally to be able to buy plane tickets. We traveled and spoke at a church in New York and a camp meeting in Vermont this past month. The kids traveled well and we were able to share about the work God is doing at Tenwek. It's been a busy time.
We asked you to pray about renting our house, that's been an up and down thing. We had renters, who fell through unfortunately. There has been some interest, but it is not rented as of yet. We are out of our house now, visiting with family before we leave, still praying it will rent before long.
So the next big question, WHEN DO WE LEAVE?
Mike has a few more weekends committed to work in Sept. We will be looking at plane tickets and exact dates this coming week, but are looking at the first week in Oct. We are thrilled to finally be at this point after so long. Its exciting to have everything for the container packed up and stored until its time to ship, our house in Albany all packed up for storage and the suitcases we are taking with us on standby. Thank you for standing with us for what has seemed like a very long season of preparation. Once we have an exact departure date, we will let you know!!
