Last Monday, we asked friends to join us to pray that Pete’s Kenyan work permit be approved within the week. Incredibly, we received word of its approval the VERY DAY we were all praying. God’s timing is amazing! We had been waiting months for the approval. It was the very last piece we needed before leaving for Kenya.
And because it was the last piece we needed, we have now set a departure date!! We will be flying out of Tampa this Tuesday evening, June 13 and arriving in Kenya the middle of Thursday, June 15. In all, our travel time is about 40 hours because of a long layover in New York. We find it a touch hard to believe that we’ll be in Kenya at this time next week! All these years of dreaming, praying, planning, and working, and we’re finally going!!
Please continue to pray for us as we go through these final few days in the States. We are placing our last-minute orders on Amazon (thank you, two-day shipping), making a Target run, and holding Skype meetings and business phone calls. I am so relieved, however, that we don’t have the last rush of packing since we did that before leaving Minnesota last month. All our bins and bags have been sitting in Kim & Kelly’s garage here in Florida, waiting for their next leg of the trip. Four days. Eeeeeee!
Love to you all for helping make this happen! We are so thankful for you!
