Well, it is official. Joel and I are going to visit Brazil and get evaluated by Asas de Socorro. We leave the 22nd and get back the 28th of this month. The kids will be staying here in Boston with Joel's parents.
Be praying for us. We will be traveling around 20 hours each way. Whew...makes me tired to think about it. :) On the other hand though, we won't have the kids with us...that will be much less tiring. But, that is the other prayer request...we won't have the kids with us. Pray for me especially...I DEPISE the thought of leaving them for 6 days...ugh. We have left Grady overnight, but only a couple of times...and have never left Hadley overnight. Pray for me. Pray for the kids too, that they will just have so much fun here (as I'm sure they will) and not even miss us. Leaving the kids is hard, but we really do feel peace about that decision. I know that that is what God wants, for both of us to go. It will be a good trip.
Besides leaving the kids, we are super excited about this opportunity to go to Brazil. Thanks for your prayers.
