It was a full morning of preparations, but we were able to leave about 11:40 a.m. Now, we have twenty hours of driving to make it to the Philadelphia area. We’ll split it into two days, arriving sometime mid-afternoon tomorrow.
Our family pulls together to finish all the necessary details to be able to leave. Each person plays a crucial role. Whether it be food prep, laundry, bus maintenance, ministry prep, or running errands–it all has to be done. In the midst of the preparations, if one person needs help, someone else gladly pitches in. What a blessing!
We said good-bye to all the relatives before leaving town. Abby asked Aunt Anna to make sure to send lots of pictures.
Our hearts are excited about this SEARCH conference. They originally contacted us last year, and we have been so blessed by the leadership’s hearts and vision. It is our joy and delight to be able to come alongside them and share.
