There are a hundred phrases that are going through my head right now including the lyrics to that Peter Paul and Mary song. Let’s roll! Just do it! Light this candle, etc. to name just a few.
It has been a mad push to get to this place. Not only have we been preparing for this trip, but there has been business trips, meetings, auditions, not to mention the final stages of the build out in my store, as well as all the day to day things that still have to be accomplished.
People have been asking me for weeks if I’m excited about the trip and I have been giving a very tepid yes. To be honest I have been trying to get so many things wrapped up that, while the trip was looming in the back of my mind, I almost couldn’t even think about it. It wasn’t until last night that I even started pulling a few things together to pack and finished only an hour ago.
This week when the paint was finally dry and the contactor said his (almost teary) good byes – 4 weeks late- that I could walk out into the store and almost feel a sense of peace.
Now I am feeling that same peace about the trip.
I’m officially looking forward to the trip now.
I’m looking forward to you following along with us.
I’m looking forward to preaching with Cynthia the Easter sermon in Kenya.
I’m looking forward to the adventure.
We covet your prayers for safe travel.
If you are inclined to pray specifically, our team members names are:
For now though “Our bags are packed, Were ready to go…The taxi’s waiting, He’s blowing his horn…”
