We're moving! But between now and then, we're doing a lot of traveling. By the time we start to settle down in Manitoba in September we'll have crossed the ocean three times, closed up our house in Mindanao, spent a month in Palawan, and spent a couple of weeks in another guesthome here in the Philippines. That feels like a long list for less than 7 months. It's no wonder my head is spinning.

Two weeks from today we'll head to Manila, then a week later we'll be on our way to Manitoba and Arizona. But first, this week we get to enjoy several days of meetings with our aviation team! We are so blessed by our team, so thankful for the way they're all growing into the flight program here in the Philippines. It's amazing to invest in lives and see fruit growing!

One of the main goals of our meetings this week is to pass on most of our responsibilities to other people on our team. While they are already doing an incredible amount, Garry is still responsible for many things. He's hoping to change that over the course of this week!

The boys are staying busy with school, though they'll have a bit of a break while we're in meetings. Stay tuned for an update at the end of the week!
