In less than two weeks, we will be landing in Guinea, Africa. Our time in the U.S. is drawing to a close, and it is time to return to work in Guinea. We are so excited to be going back to the land where God has called us to serve. At the same time, it is sad to think that we will be saying goodbye to our beloved family and friends here. Please keep us in prayer in the coming days as we finish storing, shipping, and packing in preparation for our departure. Pray for safety on June 20 in particular as we fly to Guinea with our twin daughters, Amelie and Annika on our laps. It will be a long journey for such little ones. We will be in the air for a total of about sixteen hours with another twelve or so spent in airports or traveling to or from airports.
The past few weeks have been a flurry of activity. One praise is that we were able to get a fantastic price on our plane tickets. Another, is that we were able to ship more items to Guinea. We will be especially thankful for a solar fridge and freezer that we were able to ship over. Here are some other things we took for shipment recently.
Another big praise is that we will not be traveling alone. Billie’s great friend and college roommate, Lisa, will be accompanying us. Here presence will be a great help as we attempt to navigate airports and endure long hours in the airplane with two little ones. She will also have the opportunity to get an idea of what we do in Guinea as we settle back into life there. She will be with us about two weeks. Please keep her in prayer as well. Here is a picture of her.
