Every bit helps

At a yard sale today a person had the picture of "Bowen" on display.  A little boy came up.  "What's wrong with that baby?" he asked.  "He was born without arms and legs" they replied.  "I want to help that baby" he said, and paid $20 for $5 item.

It is humbling and touching to hear stories like this.  It is humbling to see God's provision for us.  Every little bit helps.  This endeavor is to big for us to do by ourselves.

Getting Close...Travel Date

We finally got the 'call'.  We will be flying out May 18th.  This is both super exciting and super nerve wracking.  I haven't quite figured out how I will leave my girls this long.  Hopefully, we will have a good internet connection and will be able to Skype with them.  We now begin the journey of packing and getting everything in order for our stay 'over there'.

The good news is that we have almost a month.  That is longer than we had last time, and we know of people who have only had a five day notice.

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!   That is the first of many screamings we have to do.  There is much to be done and relatively little time to do it.  There are many many questions to be answered.  There are many things to do and to prepare.  We still need to do a lot of fundraising.  It is nervewracking - there are so many things that could go wrong and almost all of them are outside our control.  At the same time it is exciting - we draw near to the end of months of paperwork.
