We have TRAVEL DATES!!!!!

Posted by Jennifer at 5:48 PM
Most people dread Mondays.  And they are not usually my favorite day of the week.  But today, this Monday, might go down in history as one of my favorite days ever.  Why you might ask? 

Because....this morning when I got up, I had an e-mail waiting from our agency...

WITH OUR TRAVEL DATES!!!!!!!! 

We will be leaving Friday, July 6th (arrive in the girls' city on Sunday, July 8th) to meet our girls!!!!!  OH HAPPY DAY!!!!    We'll be able to spend that week visiting with them, and will fly back home on Saturday, July 14th. 

So here we go!!!! :)  We're gathering up the last of our toys to take for the girls, trying to put together some donations for the orphanages (we're taking children's tylenol, band-aids and basic medical supplies this trip if you'd like to contribute!!), getting gifts to take to the orphanage workers and our in-country agency staff - and trying to find somewhat affordable plane tickets....oh yeah and Brandon's working and I've got VBS at church this week!  Yep we're crazy!! :)

I can't believe in 11 days we'll be flying around the world and meeting our girls!!!!!!  Please pray for us to get everything ready to go, that the funds we have raised are sufficient and please pray for our girls - please pray that God begins to prepare their hearts and ours for meeting each other, spending this time together and then separating again for a few months!

We're coming girls and I can't wait to KISS YOUR CHEEKS!! :) 


p.s. a HUGE thank you to everyone who has contributed to our fund this week. WOW we've been blown away by your generosity!
