...

we are leaving in one month and 6 days! that is crazy to think about. the closer our departure comes, the more frightened i become! please don't get me wrong...i am so excited about next year, we both are. but at the same time, leaving the world, all the comforts we know, the people we love...its kind of scary! although, at the same time, i am growing more and more excited! i saw that some teachers last year were able to paint their classrooms, and am really hoping i might be able to as well.

we are really close with support. we have been blown away by the generosity of people...if you are a supporter and our reading this blog, then please know how grateful we are to you!

right now, we have started to do the little things...like this upcoming week, we will sign up for our international health insurance. also, we will switch my car insurance to liability only. we still have to get yellow fever shots, and we will have to begin taking larium two weeks before we go. we are nomads for the time being, spending some time in jackson and some time in brookhaven.

please keep in your prayers zimbabwe...from what i understand, the goverment has said that no more aid can come in from other countries. so the starving people in zimbabwe will just continue to starve...and no one can bring anything in to help them! the situation in that country is just really bleak.
