10 Days to go...

Hey everyone, sorry it has been so long since our last posting. A lot has been happening. We currently are in Manhattan, KS, where Megan is the matron of honor in a wedding. I was a groomsman in a wedding two weeks ago in Lawrence, as well. (Congrats to Daniel and Lindsey and Austin and Amy!) We also have one more wedding to go before we leave for Argentina.

We recently returned from 8 days in Memphis, spent visiting my family. We stopped on the way to Memphis to celebrate our two-year anniversary! It's hard to believe it has been two years! Time flies...

A lot has been going on these past few weeks:
  • Daniel closed out his ministry with Hawks for Christ in Lawrence, and has transitioned to working for Northside before we leave
  • Megan has finished her work in Lawrence as well, and is spending time with her family before we go
  • We closed out our apartment, and packed up everything
  • We've had two weddings, with one more on the way
  • We've traveled to Memphis, Birmingham, Manhattan, Lawrence, etc.
  • We have continued fundraising (only $600-700 or so to go!)
  • We've continued our language training and learning
  • Daniel has been working with Northside, teaching Bible classes, preaching, and leading singing
  • Etc.
Hard to believe that we leave for Argentina in 10 days! We are excited, and incredibly nervous. It has been hard saying goodbye to our family and friends. We are having to say bye to people who mean a lot to us, and that has been hard. It has also been difficult to pack up all of our things for storage. We are also realizing that this is real, and we will be in Buenos Aires soon...

Things to pray about:
  • We had an apartment fall through, so we are back to square one. Pray that God will lead us to the right place to live.
  • Language learning: Although we enjoy Spanish, it is also difficult. Pray for our retention
  • Pray for the Caballito congregation
  • Pray for the LST readers we will be meeting in a few days. Pray that God will continue opening hearts to his word.
  • Pray for the rest of our fundraising efforts

Thanks for your love and support! More on Monday!
