It's so hard to believe that the time has come. We are leaving tomorrow! Since I don't know if I'll be able to blog tomorrow (I might give it a try on my phone at the airport), I thought I'd say a quick farewell to the good 'ol USA on here:
Goodbye, air conditioning!
Goodbye, ice cubes!
Goodbye, memory foam mattress!
Goodbye, American friends!
We'll see you again in a month (or three weeks, Lord willing).
Ok, on to more serious matters...I know this trip is going to be tough. I have no delusions about that. It is going to challenge me in so many ways and I will probably have a breakdown or two (or three). What I ask of you, my dear bloggy readers, is to PRAY PRAY PRAY for us everyday we are in country, and PLEASE leave us comments of encouragement on here. I can't tell you how much those comments keep me going sometimes.
You could specifically pray for:
~~~Quick adjustment to the heat/lack of AC.
~~~Resting in our down times (instead of impatiently waiting for the next thing)
~~~That we are able to find and buy all we need while we are there
~~~For Rob and I to have patience with each other :)
~~~A good internet connection everywhere we stay
~~~The opportunity to go to Vorzel
~~~For quick bonding with Lily
I'll add more specific prayer requests as they come up. Thank you all so much! I'm off to go finish packing :)
