Until Beijing ...

Please be fairly warned ~ this will be a long post :) We are soooo ready to go. This week started out with a few hurdles, leaving me two days behind schedule, but it was nothing God couldn't handle, and nothing worth sharing the details over now. This morning I asked the Lord to multiply my energy and the hours in this day, and feel He has answered that prayers. This is done:
The work is done!
When I started this day, I really didn't know if I'd have the time or energy to turn this into anything edible.
But Monday night I cooked a little (or lot) of meat.
Today I chopped a few veggies, added some more ingredients ...
... and we have a few week's of meals. Inquiring minds want to know: We have homemade spaghetti and meatballs, chicken and noodles, chicken licken, chicken enchiladas, beef enchiladas, cheeseburger soup, sloppy joes, BBQ beef, chicken pot pie, 3 stouffer's lasagnas and 4 frozen pizzas.
The house is even clean, or was until Daddy brought Kambry home for lunch.
A praise is the Hill Family received the same CA and will join us in GZ toward the end of our trip! And now I am prepared for three weeks of drinks without ice, unidentifiable meat dishes, chasing two 20 something month old toddlers, spending much quality time with my husband and my dear, sweet friend April. Thank you for your emails, comments, text messages and phone calls! They have been such an encouragement to me. I hope you enjoy our journey, and we would love to hear from you!
Prayer requests:
Easy flight connections
Smooth air travel
Ladena and all the kids
all the families pitching in
David, Ashley and Kaylee (April's family)
Uneventful touring
That Kaeleb would quickly learn to trust and depend on us
We will be without our church family for three weeks
My mom as she cares for my dad
That my dad would accept Christ
God bless you all!
