This is going to be a short post, but not because it isn't big. We're going to Germany! It's hard to express in words the thanks we owe to our family, friends, and local churches for the support they've been to us, and we want you to know just how much we appreciate it. Frankly, we probably never will be able to thank you properly, but that's the thing about a good gift, isn't it? In short, we're right around the 91% region, with just enough grey area to provide certainty and uncertainty. Our flights are booked for August 7, via Toronto and London before arriving in Basel. We're hoping/looking forward to meeting up with my brother and sister-in-law in Toronto, and then plan to join flights with friends in London who are traveling from Chicago to join forces at the Black Forest Academy as well.
This week ahead will be busy-busy-busy with packing/sorting/giving/selling/discarding/burning, and your prayers are especially needed as we make lots of big decisions about things that are very near to us. Emotions are near the surface at a time like this, and distractions abound, but we're approaching a departure date and need to get things sorted by then.
Thanks again for all of your support, and we'll send more details soon!
