Pins and Needles

As we approach our departure one week from tomorrow, I am going through a little bit of anxiety. For you see, our team leaders are having difficulty getting their Visas to get into Cameroon. We are praying that this set back will be resolved quickly as time is running out.

On another note, I have started packing although I am a long way from being finished. It seems the more I pack, the longer my list gets of things I've forgotten. I pray that I am organized and ready to go when the time comes next week.

As far as those I am leaving behind, well that is also causing a little bit of anxiety. My husband is going to have to be all things to all children (2 of them) while I am gone. But mostly, I struggle with leaving my mother at this time. She starts her radiation and chemotherapy today for her brain tumor. This is going to be a 5-7 week process. I foresee 7 weeks as they started late and will need to probably "zap" a few extra cancer cells. I just pray that my brother is able to withstand the pressure of being her primary care giver. He is doing such a fantastic job. I have never seen a son take on that role like he has with our mother. I will be forever grateful to him.

I am also in the process of revamping my resume and posting it to the web. I am also going to try to update my LinkedIn account as much as possible today.

Have a wonderful day everyone, and continue to remember us all in your prayers! God Bless!

Getting Ready for the Next Great Adventure!

WOW! I can't believe that 3 weeks from tomorrow, on March 7, I and 11 other people will embark on a missionary journey to Cameroon, Africa. We are so excited to be doing the Lord's work and ministering to people who may never have heard of the greatest gift of all. We are sharing the Jesus Film with the people and will talk with them about all that Jesus did for them and how God loved them so much that he gave his only begotten Son to save the world.

Please be in prayer for our team and our families that we are leaving behind. The team will need the strength, both physical and spiritual. Our families will need comfort and belief that God will take care of all of us and bring us back safely to them.
