Only 24 More Hours!!

How is it possible that we are leaving tomorrow!! We seriously could not be more excited right now and have been buzzing about our trip all day. It all seems so surreal and almost too good to be true but as soon as we take off tomorrow I think it will all sink in. Through all this excitement there is still some fear and nerves about the adventure we will take on tomorrow. I think the biggest thing on our minds right now is just that we have a fairly limited idea of what to expect or look forward to. Deuteronomy 31:6 is such a huge reminder of the great God we serve and that he will provide us with all we need on this trip and through our lives. It says "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." How perfect is that for our situation right now? We are so excited and feel so fortunate to get to experience this and grow together in our faith and character. Thank you for your continued prayers and for thinking of us as we take on our fears and anxieties over these next few weeks. Blessings, Caitlin W.

Have a wonderful trip, it will change you forever and give you a better understanding of how blessed we are to live in this country and how we can be content with much less.
God's blessings on all.
