Update- Start the Countdown!

Canoes on the beach at Pointe Noire

Our time here in the US is drawing to a close.  We find ourselves in a series of lasts… the last church presentation, the last visit with a friend or family member… lots of bittersweet moments.

We have our departure date and plane tickets.  We leave for Congo on March 11.  But there are things to look forward to as well… reuniting with friends in Brazzaville and Impfondo is at the top of the list.

Caleb loves to find the Republic of Congo on every map or globe.
One more last… our last approval needed is to get our visas.  Our visa paperwork has been submitted, and we should have our visas in a couple of weeks.

In the meantime, Stephen is studying for his two recertification exams.  He will take those February 20 and 22.

We've been packing the things we think we will need for the next three years- mostly school books and clothes for growing kids!

Anna is trying to do school with the kids in the midst of all of our travels.  It's been a challenge, but we've found creative ways to fit in our school work.

Please keep us in your prayers as we finish our "lasts" and prepare to move forward.
