We have officially begun our journey to Poland! Yesterday we flew from OKC to Baltimore, Maryland (where Aaron's parents live) for one last week of family time, preparation, and re-packing our bags to get them under the weight and size requirements for our flight to Poland.
We'll be in Maryland for a little over a week, with speaking opportunities planned at the Cambridge (MD) and Damascus (MD) churches of the Nazarene on Wednesday and Thursday nights. We also hope to visit at least one last Civil War battlefield site before the weekend, when Aaron's dad's church (Grace Pointe Community Church of the Nazarene) will break ground on their new campus in Severn, MD. After one last night (of tamales!) with friends and family, we'll leave for Boston-Chicago-Warsaw-Poznan EARLY on Monday morning...it'll be about a 21-hour trip, all told. Fun stuff!
Please pray for us as we spend time with Aaron's family, trim our things-we're-taking-to-Poland list even further, feverishly study Polish, attempt to make the most of our last 2 fundraising opportunities, and wait (we hope patiently) to hear back from a potential major donor.
In the meantime, we're trusting God...this is way bigger than us! :)
