We are so excited to finally let everyone know how God has been working in our lives over the last few years. We have started this blog so, everyone can participate with us on our new journey.
We are moving overseas to Southern Sudan to serve with the Toposa people. We will live near Kapoeta, S. Sudan. (you can Google Earth Kapoeta, sometimes) Our job will to be church planters. We will be getting to know the people and learning the language right at first.
Right now, we are busy getting everything ready for the move. The house is now on the market and we are getting our things in order for a HUGE estate sale. We will be selling almost everything. Please pray for the house to be sold quickly! We need the house sold by October 11th in order to be commissioned in November.
Our schedule is to be commissioned on November 11th in Houston. After that, Orientation starts the end of January for 8 weeks. Once we finish orientatin, we will begin bush training in Zambia for several weeks. We met several neat couples with kids the boys ages at Canidate conference that will be attending these with us. The boys should have a blast.
We should make it home to S. Sudan around June 2009. We can't wait for this. The kids are excited to see for themselves what their new home will be like.
Shannon and I will head to S. Sudan with our church in October. This will be my first time for me to be there.
Please pray for our family, the sale of our house and for the Toposa people. We will keep you updated on all that is going on. We love ya'll and thank you for all your support.
