T minus 10

This is it.  We are down to the final days of preparation before embarking on what we are praying will be a life changing adventure.

Lessons have been planned, flashcards created, and games invented.  Bags of craft supplies litter the living room, waiting to be packed into bags to travel the 3948 miles to those amazing little children.  Spanish words and phrases have been learned.  Prayer letters have been sent.  Donations have been made.  

We are ready...
i hope

But ready or not...here we come.

In these final days, we are realizing the absolute necessity of prayer.  As we leave we would ask you to write on your calender to remind you to specifically pray for us.  Here is our schedule, so that you know exactly what we are doing and where we are going from day to day.  

As you start your day, can you pray for ours?

Via con Dios!!
