When I hit the publish button at the bottom of this page, I will wake everyone up and we will head to DFW airport. It is 1am, Thursday, July 7th. We have waited two and half years for this moment and it is here. What does one do on their final day before heading to the mission field. Well, pray. A lot! Wonder one final time, are we doing the right thing. Pray some more. Know that this is exactly what God is calling us to do. For the last two months we have been talking about the move, the journey. We have rejoiced as God as reassured us over and over again of the calling had has given us. But it was not until a couple of hours ago that reality hit. WE ARE GOING TO HONDURAS!!!!
We are so thankful for all of you who have prayed for us, supported us, and listen as we prepared. It really is hard to say goodbye to family and so many amazing friends. The next 14 hours are going to be intense. We leave Dallas at 5:30am, Miami by 9:30am, hit San Pedro by 10:45am, and finally arrive in Gracias around 5 or 6pm tomorrow night. We have been up since 7am this morning, not wanting to miss anything these few final hours. The result excitement and tired bodies.
It will probably be a few days or maybe even weeks before we get internet, but as soon as we do, we will make another post and fill you in on all the details. In the meantime, please keep us in your prayers. We love all of you!
Shannon, Kristi, Tyler, and Emma.
