It is hard to believe that we will be flying over the ocean heading back to our beloved Africa in just a little over 3 weeks! This has been quite possibly the smoothest time of preparation to move. Of course we still have 3 weeks ahead of us which includes packing for 3 years in a remote area in South Sudan, packing up our entire American home, speaking at a supporting church in North Carolina and a week-long missions conference at our home church THE WEEK WE LEAVE!
Despite not knowing what the political climate will be in South Sudan when we return, not knowing when exactly we can fly back into South Sudan from Kenya, and so many unanswered questions, God has been flooding Eli and I with so much peace and trust in this process. He has used so many details to confirm that we are heading in the right direction, HIS direction for us. God has already provided a lovely couple with a baby to rent our house - they signed a 3 year contract! He also found a family (Eli's sister) to buy our van, and has brought a handful of new supporters on board to provide for the 10% of support we were still lacking! Don't you think that is confirmation???
With only 3 weeks left, we ask for your prayers as we pack and still have about 10 different speaking engagements. Please pray for health as we are running harder. And please pray for our kids, that we will help them to feel loved and secure amidst all the change and packing.
