The Date is Set: July26th. Peru or bust!!!

Since we hit the 85% mark, we went ahead and purchased tickets to move to Peru. The official date is set for Wednesday, July 26th! Yes, it was weird buying one way tickets out of the country. We're excited, but there remains much to be done, including packing up our house to ship down on a 20ft. container, as well as to have a garage sale or two before we go to sell off everything else.

Almost There....

Well, the latest report is in and I am thrilled to report to you that we have 85% of the monthly support we need pledged! This has been a long haul, but God is good. As most of you know by now, our work with RUF at Texas A&M was over at the end of May, so we are on board with RUF-Peru! Thanks to all of you who are standing with us through financial & prayer support. We couldn't do this without you!


Well, things keep happening that keep us on the road to Peru! For example, we sold our house in 2 1/2 weeks, and I sold my truck yesterday (which was arguably more sad than selling my house!). We close on the house July 24th, so hopefully everything will go smoothly!
