She's Off...

Update: We received an email from Pris this afternoon (Friday, Sept. 7th) and she says she's having a amazing time but really missing all of us. They have already visited the orphanage, which turns out to be more like a school, and the kids were following them around begging to have their pictures taken, which she was only too happy to oblige. She says she has really felt the presence of the Lord the last couple of days and asks for prayer that they will have a strong impact and that they will grow in the Lord through it. Also, please pray that she won't get too homesick because she usually has a hard time being away from all of us - and I'm sure it won't help that she knows we are headed to the beach for a family vacation. The two trips coincided and we couldn't change them. But we know God is bigger than all of that and we trust His purposes!


Priscilla is on her way to Kenya on a mission trip. It's amazing to think she' ll be in a country bordering an ocean we've never even seen before. People have been asking me if I'm nervous or worried. Even the cashier at McDonalds, where we stopped to get ice cream on the way to the airport, asked me if I was ok with her going. (We told her about the trip because she was asking if all of the kids were off school) Maybe it's weird, but I'm fine. I can't wait to hear all about it. I'm excited for her and thrilled that she has had this opportunity.
Thank you to everyone who has helped with financial contributions and prayers. Please continue to pray for them this week.
She took our digital camera and a journal and has promised to write in it daily. I'm sure she'll be blogging about it when she gets home so stay tuned.
