It's official......

     We are DEFINITELY leaving for our trip to Vanuatu on July 22nd. Bill Widup helped us in getting the best deal for our flights. We will fly out of Chicago on Sunday July 22nd and return on Tuesday October 23rd. There's no turning back now :)

     But seriously, we are VERY thankful to everyone who donated and believe in us and our family. Without the love and support of our family, church family and many friends who are out of state, this would not be possible.

     We are excited to see what God has in store for us, but we are quickly learning how hard it is going to be to leave behind the students in our Youth Group. While we are confident that God has given us the best adult volunteer staff a YP could ever ask for, we are going to miss these kids like they are our own. We know that they they are going to be taken care of and we trust that God will continue to lead and guide them in their walk with Him.

     Will you also join us in praying for the Widup family (the folks we are going to serve with) and their safe return back to Vanuatu. I can't go into details but I know that they would appreciate your prayers for them as they work out the necessary paperwork issues that need worked out for them to be able to return. We are so thankful that God has placed them in our lives and we look forward to  serving with them soon.

    Thanks for following us along our journey and continuing to pray for us!

God Bless!
