Today's the Day!

Tonight, about 6:30 EST, we (and three other families & two singles) fly out of Newark to London and then...-woo hoo!!- Nairobi, Kenya -arriving 9:30pm Saturday night, Kenya time (See Nairobi clock in lower right sidebar)!! I am so excited! (Breanna writing) Here's an awesome Bible verse I am claiming for my family today and in the next months of orientation (3 weeks); and then living with a Kenyan family (4 weeks); and then finally getting into our own rented home in Nairobi!

"He is your constant source of stability. He abundantly provides safety and great wisdom. He gives all this to those who fear Him."
Isaiah 33:6 (NAT)

I am praying this verse will especially be a comfort to Olivia, who is 10. We have been praying that she will be able to give her anxiety to God and make friends fast. Fortunately, we are traveling with other kids close to our kids' ages and so they have been running and playing constantly while we finished up final paperwork and packing yesterday. God has been extremely faitthful to her in our intermediate moves to Minnesota and North Carolina, providing wonderful close friends. We trust He will do the same in Kenya!!

Breanna - I'm praying for you guys today! I hope that your trip goes smoothly and that you get acclimated quickly. I know we didn't know each other that well while you lived in MN, but I've been following your blog and will be praying as you start this new stage in your life! Safe travels!
