Something I've been keeping to myself...

Ok, I'm just gonna go right into it. Some of you may 
know this already. Some may not.
There's something I've chosen to keep to myself... 

My family and I are moving to Namibia, Africa to be 
missionaries for two years and we're leaving on January 31st. 
I'm {obviously} not out-of-my-mind-excited for this and 
didn't really feel like sharing that area of my life. 

Since I started blogging, we already knew we 
were leaving, and my blog turned into a new group of friends that 
didn't know that part about me. I honestly enjoyed talking
with other people and not having Africa coming up in 
every single conversation.

Now I'm beginning to feel guilty I've never shared this with most of you. 
Sometimes I feel sad, mad, worried, or anxious at the 
idea of leaving and was never able to blog about it!
I can't wait to share with everyone all of the pictures I'm going to be taking 
there and all of the cool things I'm going to experience...

Since the 31st is drawing so close, I probably
 won't be blogging very much...
At least not into the regular flow of things until 
about mid February to March. 

Here's the rundown:
On the 31st we are leaving Minnesota and 
going to Peach Tree, Georgia. 
We'll be staying at the mission agency {A.I.M.} 
headquarters for a couple days...
Then from there we are going to Kenya for some training with 
other missionaries before everyone goes their own ways. 
We'll be there for about 3 weeks.
Then after the 3 weeks in Kenya, we'll be headed to 
the capital of Namibia, Windhoek for a few days.
Then FINALLY to our home in Otjiwrongo, Namibia.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask them!

  1. Wow...that will be a huge change. I cannot imagine what I would do if my family was going to do that.I can understand how you could have wanted to have a life outside of the trip. But I think that once you start going you will be excited. I will be praying for your safety, health and everything. I know that you and your family will shine for God there. And be sure to post pictures!
    Keep Growing Beautiful♥ (Cause You Are!)
