2 Weeks and Counting

Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement over these past few months. It's hard to believe that in 2 weeks from today, we'll be boarding a plane and heading back to Zambia. Praise God for all that He has done during our time here.

We just wanted to ask for your prayers for some specific things over the next few weeks:

Packing - We have a lot of packing and preparing to do. Pray for Kerri's sanity, as she is primarily responsible for this task. Pray that we will be able to get all of the items that we need to take packed and under the weight limit.

Pray for the health of our family during this time as well. Pray that there won't be any stomach bugs or colds, etc.. that would delay us from our return.

Pray for our hearts. We have cherished this time the Lord has given us and it's going to be hard to leave our family and friends again.

Pray for our children as we travel. Pray that the younger ones would travel well. Pray for our safety as we travel.

Pray for our luggage. The airport in South Africa is notorious for "losing luggage." Pray that all of our luggage would make it to Zambia. Pray specifically for the baby formula that we are taking with us. Ellie requires this special formula because she is lactose intollerant. Pray that it makes it to Zambia as well.

Thank you again for standing behind us as we pursue Glorifying Jesus Christ in Zambia. We couldn't minister without your prayers and support.
