The time has arrived for us to depart Hilton Head Island and begin our journey to the West for pre-field training.  We have become somewhat adept at packing and moving/relocating.  Yesterday marked our 4th (by my account) relocation Since June 30th. These relocations have proven somewhat of a life lesson for us.  Less is more!  Take only what you need!  You don’t really need that much stuff, etc.

We are excited to see what Colorado and Mission Training International has in store for us for the next 4 weeks.  We will be in the Atlanta area until Thursday before our flight.  We have jokingly described ourselves as Roaming Gnomes as we are staying in multiple locations….wherever folks are brave enough to house our crazy crew of 5.

We are learning to adapt to the surroundings too!  Note Cindy’s picture of me during my devotional time!  Go Dawgs!


Emma quickly reminded us as we were leaving that we needed to pray for our journey…my heart is full knowing our kids love Jesus.   This is a pic of us piled in the Expedition as we began our journey.


Please be in prayer for us as we follow God’s lead in preparation for Peru.  We are excited, anxious, and ready!
