We're Going!

Thanks to an incredibly generous public, many of our friends and family, and possibly divine intervention, we have raised enough money to pay for our Costa Rica missions trip.

We leave in three days.

I didn't realize how massive this undertaking would be until Michelle started packing for it. There are clothes upon clothes all over the place--who knew it would take so much planning and effort to shuttle two weeks' worth of clothes for seven people?

Anyway, we're all very excited (and slightly nervous) about the whole endeavor. We look forward to seeing the ways God stretches us on this trip (though I'm secretly hoping that he only stretches me in ways that are comfortable--which probably means he won't).

If I can, I'll offer some updates while abroad. I'm taking a two-week vacation from the ol' laptop, but I think there'll be a computer somewhere along the way.

So glad to hear that you guys are going. Please update if you can, but I know from experience that mission trips rarely give up moments in which you have nothing to do.

We'll be praying.

Such was the case, Mark. We just got back, and I didn't have a lick of time nor desire to update this thing while we were away. I'll be posting plenty about it in the days to come...

Welcome home big A. (don't know where "big A" came from), anyway, can't wait to hear all the amazing stories told in the way only you and Michelle can tell 'em.
