Changes in Plans

"A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps." ~ Proverbs 16:9

Our original plan was to leave on May 21st, however the Lord seemed to have a different plan. Our visas didn't arrive before our departure date, so we had to change our flight. Thankfully, we received an email from the consulate yesterday...our visas were issued and we should receive them tomorrow!

Though we don't completely understand why we had to change our flight, we know that the Lord had a perfect reason. One thing that has turned into a blessing is being able to sell a lot of our stuff (that somehow multiplied under our noses), which has covered a lot of the cost of changing tickets. Another blessing is that we're able to see a dear friend of ours as he visits home from being a missionary in Ecuador.

All in all, we know that the Lord is in control of everything and are thankful that He is working in ways we don't even see yet. Our new flight is scheduled for June 18th, so for the next few weeks we'll be nomads.

All of your prayers and support are so greatly appreciated! It means so much to us to know that there are people praying for us.

Final Preparations

As we prepare to head out to England, there's a lot of last minute things that have come up. One of which was starting a blog...a place for people like you to keep in touch and hear about what the Lord is doing in our lives and the ministries we're blessed to be a part of. This blog will include normal posts as well as photos and videos (hopefully)!

We'd love to hear from you too, so feel free to post any comments or shoot us an email.

We so greatly appreciate all your love, prayers, and support as we begin this amazing journey. Our biggest prayer request right now is for our immigration visas to arrive before we are scheduled to leave next Tuesday. If they don't however, we'll just have to change our tickets. The Lord know the perfect time for us to arrive and we are trusting in that.
