In the past year and a half, Wayne and I have come to a conclusion…we are not normal! Not many families spend half of the month on the road, shop for baby toys that travel well, and have babies that have been in over 20 states before their first birthday! But that has been our life thus far. Things are changing though, this week in fact! Our travel will be dying down as we transition out of

-We do not yet know which city we will live in, so we will have an opportunity to visit both

-The Bible college that
-Addie just turned one, but we are already thinking about where we will send her to school! We would like to check out our options as that will probably help us decide where to live.
-We have heard nothing but good things about the WorldVenture team we will be joining in
-We are moving to Dallas 3 weeks after we get back, but we still don’t know what of our stuff we will keep and move with us, and what we will just get rid of and start over with in Senegal. On this trip, we hope to scope out what is available there and what we really want to bring with us.
-Meet Senegalese people and get a taste for the culture. Everybody that we have talked to who has been to
Please pray for us as we seek to accomplish these goals. Here are a few specific requests.
-Jet-lag. Our trip is short (we will be returning on December 8th). Pray that we will adjust quickly to the 7 hour time difference and have the energy to accomplish all that we want to in that week.
-Addie. Actually, this is more of a prayer request for me. I know Addie will be fine, but I have a feeling I will miss her a lot (
-Wisdom. We hope to gather a lot of information on this trip that will help us make some big decisions (where to live, school for Addie, what to take etc…) Pray that we would have wisdom in these areas.
-Excitement. We are already incredibly excited to be moving to
As always, we greatly covet your prayers and know that God does great things though the prayers of His saints. We would like to keep you updated as we are in
Thank you again for your prayers and support, and we look forward to sharing with you the great things God will do and show us in our trip!
