I have felt such love and support this past week from friends and family who have called, e-mailed, gave a donation, made amazing things happen in the visa department, and prayed with us and for us. There are so many people I have wanted to call and talk to before I left, but time has gotten away from me. If you have not been personally thanked (YET), please forgive me. If you encouraged us in any way I just want to say a heartfelt thank you. I am feeling very blessed.
It is very, very hard to leave my family here. My heart is divided, but I look forward to the day when we will all be together. If this trip is a means to the end then so be it.
I look forward to seeing my daughter's birth country first hand. I look forward to the people I will meet along the way. I pray that somehow I can be a light for Christ on my travels and pray God will put people in my path that I can share His good news with.
Thank you Lord for the amazing way that you made this trip come together.
I will praise the LORD, who counsels me;even at night my heart instructs me.
I have set the LORD always before me.Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
