We leave in about three days!! Can you believe it? I realized I have'nt been writing much lately. I think it is because I don't really know how to express what I am feeling. So I thought I would give it a try.
I am so excited about what the next few weeks bring for us. We leave Wednesday the 21st at 2am Seattle time. We arrive in Cambodia around 11:30am Thursday Cambodia time. It is about a 19 hour flight. It is going to be a long flight!! When we get there we are going to load up on a bus and visit Siem Reap. At Angkor Wat they have beautiful temples that bring people from all over the world to visit. After our weekend visit we get to go apartment searching. I am so excited to get our own place. Last August we moved in with my parents, then lived in Mexico with our college students, then moved back home with mom and dad. Now we get our OWN place. It will be great. I am sure that it will come with its challenges. Figuring out power, paying bills, furniture, local grocery stores, all the things that come with moving into a knew place. BUT this time nothing will be in English.
I am excited for the challenge, but most of all I'm excited to start helping at Sparrow's Nest. I cannot wait to meet the young girls and boys and all the families I'll get to tell about Jesus.
I am going to miss everyone so much. I don't know how to say goodbye. I am not good at goodbyes. I am better at see you laters. I have been blessed with such great friends and family. I always new this, but leaving them for six months and then getting to spend these last few months with them made me realize I have the best group of friends and the most wonderful family out there.
Please keep us in your prayers as we leave on Wednesday!!
