The Countdown's On....

It has been so neat over the last week or so to see the pieces fall into place for our move. Since we're not responsible for any of it, I know that its all God helping everything come together.

#1 - our visas have come through! This is probably the most important point. Without the visas, we would have not been able to go. But they arrived in the mail on Tuesday  - even earlier than we were expecting!

#2 - The title to Dave's truck came in the mail. There was a mix-up at the bank and we were waiting on that before we could officially sell his truck. Since that arrived, we can finish the sale before we leave.

Dave had his last day of work on Thursday.  They had a going-away party for him, and I was able to come for it. The women in his office did a great job - almost everything was gluten-free for him! They even went to a bakery somewhere to pick up flourless chocolate cake. He is going to miss that place so much and the people that he works with. I was struck by how blessed he was to work there. His "old" boss led us in prayer time for Dave and I.

Thursday was also the last night with our small group. It was very sad, but so neat to have shared the last two years with this group of people. Here's a picture of all of us from yesterday (Sunday). 

Sunday we had our goodbye at church. It was so sad to say goodbye to everyone. Donn had us and our small group come up to the front of church and we (well, Dave, the talker in our relationship :-)) told the congregation what we'll be up to. Paul then prayed for us. It was so sweet for the church to do that.

Well, we leave tomorrow! Gotta go finish packing. I will post many updates once we get there.

I loved seeing your small group all up front yesterday. What a real picture of community. We are going to miss the 3 of you so much! Know that our prayers go with you. We love you guys!

I love how Sadie is looking at you two like "How DARE you?!?!? And this is how I find out, at CHURCH?!"
