Well, almost. We went to Walmart yesterday and got the electrical converter (the UK, well most countries for that matter, don't use the same plug-ins we do), got the travel sized toothpaste, shampoo, etc. We have enough socks and underwear to make it 12 days. Spencer has new Khaki pants, a new shirt, and I have new tennis shoes.
We're getting there.
Today we got to go to the Nebraska Christian College and see some of our great friends (Alyse Wulff, Katie Dunlap, Brett Ricley, and Drew Meyer) graduate. This marks an exciting and saddening change all at the same time. Alyse and Brett are staying in Omaha. Katie is going back to New Hampshire (such a LONG ways away) and Drew has accepted the youth ministry position at my home church. I'm SO excited for Drew and Alyssa and for Lamar Christian Church to be getting them, but at the same time I am SO sad to be losing some of our very best friends. People in Lamar had better love on them like CRAZY!
Well this week is an end and a beginning. It's the end of our Wednesday evening program. It's the last week before we leave. It's the last time we'll hang out with Drew and Alyssa while they live here. It's my last chance to get everything in order before we head out. It's also the first time Spencer will ever have visited another country and it's our first BIG trip together.
Can I ask for some prayer? Many of you know that my grandpa B is not a Christian. I've just really been praying that God will be preparing his heart for what we have to share with him when we get there. Please pray with me that he will choose to accept Jesus as his Savior. Pray also for my Granny who just had a knee replaced last week and is a bit slow to recover.
