Some things are beyond our comprehension, and that we're leaving for the US and Canada in just under two weeks is one of them! The story of how we are getting to go is one of pure grace, generosity, and friendship. It's amazing. We are so thankful to God for this gift and thankful to those of you who are making it possible for us to go. Thank you!

We are so looking forward to seeing family... we won't see everyone, unfortunately, because we'll only be in North America about 5 weeks. But we will get to see both our parents and several of our siblings. We can't wait to see more of our extended family and friends either. All of you who stand with us on this journey... we hope we see you!

It will be changing worlds in less than 30 hours... from here, where we serve folks who live in this environment to the world of North America.

We are starting school today... we want to get a few things done before we head out on our trip since we'll be returning after the normal start of the school year. Garry is at the hangar flying with Brian today-- and this time he gets to fly from the left seat as Brian gets comfortable in the right seat!

We've had a few pretty exciting days here, and I'll post about them later. Hopefully I can find some photos... I really did at least THINK of taking my camera, but since that thought didn't turn into an action I think I'll be limited to photos I can beg or borrow!
