Today was a remarkable day, and will definitely go down as a day when our Lord once again showed up and made it clear to both Brad and I that we are on the right path as far as following His call for us to come work aboard the Mercy Ships in Africa. Today our small "home church" of probably 100 members ( and that is probably being very generous, and counting all our college students, because of course we count them as part of our members I mean come on!) put together this incredibly sweet lunch that was a "last stitch" effort to raise support, as well as to allow those with any "burning" questions the opportunity to have them answered (if we even have an answer to the question at hand) as well as to serve as a last opportunity for fellowship with some of the church members with our family, as we leave in 20 days.

     TWENTY DAYS!!!!! And that is on the plane en route to training in Texas, won't be home before we then fly out to Africa on July 19…
Here we sit, at 11:11 the night before church, at our good friends/family's house; trying to figure out how to create a blog for this crazy, amazing, absolutely unbelievable adventure our family is nearly 20 days from embarking on. That math is completely accurate, despite asking my husband as he would tell you my math skills are flawed and they don't make sense. I will keep this first post short as I have to force myself to leave to head home so that we can sleep before what will be our last presentation to our "home" church before we set sail for the MercyShips.
       Thank you once again to the ever so gracious and amazing Scott and Terrie Gerger for once again opening your home and pulling out all the stops to help us. These two have spent countless hours praying for us, and helping us, I could spend and equal amount of time just writing about all they have done to support us in our mission. We are so blessed to call you family. Thank you Scott for helpin…
