>Africa. Three days.

>Hey everybody. I know you all know by now but, I AM FLIPPIN’ GOING TO AFRICA! I leave on Friday. Holy stinking moley. Can you believe it? I sure can’t! Guess what else. Two weeks from today we are meeting Charles, our first Compassion child and the one who started it all! I could not be more thrilled about that! If you don’t know anything about Compassion, well, you should! Go to their website by following this link. Change the life of a child if that is what the Lord calls you to do. Help buy mosquito nets for families around the world if that is what you should do. Help out. Make a difference. I am going back to Africa a second time in three days. The Lord changed my life through it once, and I know He will again. It’s my husbands first time. He’s a little nervous but that’s okay I am too! Not that I really want to be admitting that! I hope that I get a chance to keep up with all you as we are over there but if not, get ready for some major updates when I get back… 

Please pray for us while we are traveling as well as for the time that we are there!
