Church Send Off

Although we don't leave for Ukraine until Nov. 22, yesterday was the last day we will attend our church, since we have an extended family gathering next weekend. They have been supporting us for a long time, and it has seemed like this day would never come. So now it seems like a dream that it is really happening. After church several of our friends layed hands on us and prayed for our trip. Thanks all and we love you. One of us three was weeping and it wasn't Nancy or Mark. I also printed out little strips of paper with our blog address and left them at the entrance so that everyone can follow our blog.

Still haven't settled on plane tickets yet. The secret's out: Yes we are planning to go to London for 2 or 3 days before we arrive in Kiev.

God is moving for us! Nancy found a great deal at Shopko on Sat. A 5-piece rolling luggage set for $25. It was marked way down on clearance. Also, a friend of ours works for the school system in Mitchell in some capacity, not sure exactly what, but told us last night that she has a grant and she can give us Rosetta Stone for free! Incredible.

We saw Fireproof last night with a bunch of friends. Everyone was crying, even the guys, except for one. But he's a freak! Just kidding M.! Really, you must go see it if you haven't yet.
