The preparation continues

Wow, still so much to do, but what a blessing the journey has been so far. The things we have learnt  about God and ourselves have been amazing. The people we have met and conversations we have had have been so encouraging. The other day I thought even if we never leave the country we have been so blessed already by God's grace.

Tomorrow I am taking the boys in to CMS to show them that there is a whole body of people working behind the scences to support us while we are away. Also to show them a DVD 'Worlds Apart'. Rob and I saw this on our MIST Weekend. It's about an American family who go to Kenya for 9 days to live with a Massi tribe and some of the crosscultural stuggles they face. While difficult to compare 9 days to 12 months and very different settings, I think it will be good for the boys to feel like they have had some training too. We have been speaking with them a lot lately about how things will be different, but we will all be together and God is in control.

I will also be catching up with Faith Blake from CMS who has just returned from Murgwanza so hopefully will find out some more logistical stuff. We plan to catch up with Liz Burns soon too, she is on home leave from Murgwanza where she has been a long term missionary since 2001.

Our big jobs that still need to be done are find a tenant for our house and pack and store all our stuff. We need to sell our car and buy one in Tanzania over the internet. We also have a few more support raising events coming coming up. Crazy Whist on Sat 23rd October and a Support Raising Dinner on Sat 13th November, both of these will be held at St Philips in South Turramurra, you can find more details on this site. Lastly we will be having a garage sale in Mt Colah on Sat 20th of November, to try and clear out some of the stuff we have and don't need. If you want an excuse to have a clean up we are happy to take your pre-loved items off your hands.

Please keep praying for us as we prepare to go and serve in Murgwanza next year and show Christ love through our actions.
