We are headed back to Chad - this time for a good long stay!

Just in case any readers of this did not know, we have decided to move to Chad. We are still in the fundraising and friendraising stage, but it will be here before we know it! This summer Andy is taking a class on tropical medicine and by August we hope to be travelling to France for language lessons. If languages comes to us as quickly (or as slowly) as we think, we will back in Chad during the summer of 2012. We will be anxious by then to see those we met again. Feel free to contact us for more information about our preparations. We hope to use the blog as a way to keep folks updated on our progress.

So here is our first update:
We have 26% of our yearly expenses pledged!
We have 14% of our outgoing expenses (language school and moving expenses) collected!
We have already felt overwhelmed by peoples' generosity.
We still have several courses to finish including Biblical studies and home schooling. We still need to get our house ready and placed on the market for selling.

Thank you for your continued support and prayers!
