Update #3 - Cheers!
I'm keeping this short because life is FULL right now! We've just had the big moving sale - the house feels empty, but not empty enough as we still need to sift through stuff to get down to our three bags per person. Move out day is just around the corner.
Update on fundraising:
Monthly support: 75%
Outgoing Support: 90%
We continue to feel blessed by those who give. We are applying for our French visas even though we can't buy our tickets until we get our support in. We are moving ahead in faith that all will come in as needed. I was at a homeschool conference last week and got to chat with other missionaries there. Based on others' experiences, our support has come in much quicker than average! Makes me want to be a cheerleader for those who have signed up - "Our team is great! We've got spirit, yes we do!" So thank you, supporters. We are truly grateful!
ps. Mom got to help with the boys when I was at the conference - boy did they love that! We even helped her celebrate her birthday with a key lime pie.
