We finally got our house on the market! Huge praise to the Lord that everything got done to prepare it! We are praying that if it is God's will for us to sell it, that he will provide a buyer while we are gone.
Yes, gone...yesterday we left for Colorado for almost six weeks. We will be attending a missionary training school here. It is a institute that trains the entire family in language acquisition and cross-culture living. It is all inclusive, so we will be living on site and eating in their cafeteria (yay! no cooking for me! :) They have programs for all of the kids, so they will be learning the same things, but geared towards their ages. We have been looking forward to this time of preparation and are praying that the Lord will bless it mightily in our lives and for the building of his kingdom in Uganda.
Our trip here was no small undertaking, but a huge success! Thanks to a wonderful friend back home, we didn't have to worry about leaving our house in perfect condition to be shown while we were gone, she took care of it after we left. We stayed with some college/seminary friends in Idaho and enjoyed great fellowship and a wonderful theological discussion that went way too late into the night. And then after just a few hours sleep, we hit the road to drive the rest of the way here. We are at a hotel for the weekend before classes start on Monday. Our hotel is great, and as far as I know, the kids are sleeping peacefully in their connecting room. :)
I broke my finger the day before we left, but while it is still sore, it's on the mend, I think. So dumb...I fell going up the stairs. Yes, UP! (I got teased mercilessly by the kids
We are praising God tonight for everything! He is so good to us! Good night from Colorado! :)
