Packing and Praying

Wow, this week is so different! Mom arrived Tuesday and we have gotten started with the major packing. I said goodbye to Gordy and Bear yesterday while dropping them off at the Minneapolis airport for their trip to Congo. They won't be back until after I leave. That was a really hard part of my moving out experience so far. Wow. It really hit me that Youth Builders is over. So then the rest of my day was rough. It was all better though when I spent the evening with my kids from Faith EFC and others in a volleyball tournament. God knew just what would cheer me up. Being with the kids was it! The picture is of some of them. I have been putting off saying goodbye to them. This is getting really hard. I am only able to do it, because I remember that this move is God's will for me. That His hand has been in it every step of the way. I am really excited about this new job with Wycliffe, and yet I am trying to make sure that I have good closure here. The hardest part is leaving my "kids". Please pray for these girls and guys as they find their way in this world, that they would hold really tight to Jesus and trust Him!
So packing, packing and more packing. Going to see one of our kids compete in a tractor pull Friday! We're getting all the Wisconsin culture we can in before I leave!
Thanks for checking in!
