UPDATE!!!


Hey guys! So I thought I would let y'all know what's going on! ...

This last week or so has been very full of goodbyes
{or as we call them now- "see ya later"s} to all of our closest friends and family.
It's been really hard but in a way, it's been relieving because
 of all the build-up of anticipation for this adventure!

We've packed up our whole house and repainted it to tons
of dull colors we're not used to since someone
is going to be renting it. Today after church, we had to go
back home and say goodbye to our dogs which was probably
one of the hardest parts of this whole thing.
I know their new family will love them, but honestly,
probably not as much as our family did...

Tonight, we are at a hotel out by the Mall of America.
A few of our closest friends came and swam
with us and had dinner.... It was super fun(:

Tomorrow, we're planning on going
to the mall and our family is coming to the hotel tomorrow night.
Then on Tuesday morning, we leave
the comforts of good 'ol Minnesota!
Our flight is at 9 a.m. so we need to leave
 the hotel at about 6:50 a.m... Not too bad I guess! ;)

First, we're going to be in Georgia for about a day and a half.
The mission agency who is sending us has their
headquarters there so they are going to have a
"send-off" thing...
Then on Thursday, we are leaving the U.S.!
Our first flight is
from Georgia to Amsterdam {8 hours} then
Amsterdam to Nairobi, Kenya {another 8 hours!}
We're going to be spending about 3 weeks in Kenya for some training
and stuff like that...
After those 3 weeks in Kenya, we'll leave for Namibia!
I think we're going to be in the capital of Namibia- Windhoek for a couple days.
THEN FINALLY... Our final destination- Otjiwrango Namibia!

And that's that! Sounds busy and hectic, huh? It is!
I'm filled with so many emotions right now it's crazy!

Off to a good night of sleep in a fluffy hotel bed! ...

  1. I've been praying for you and I will continue to pray. I'm sure that the "see you later's" have been hard but I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun! And that God will give you strength! Sierra
