So… Not to make a big deal or anything… but, WE HAVE PROBABLY MET OUR FUNDRAISING GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I say probably because we have not received confirmation from AIM yet, but by our count there is a little over $21500 in our account! If you’ve been meaning to send a donation, but haven’t gotten around to it yet, despair not my friend. Emmy and I have spent a decent chunk of change on things like vaccinations and other travel expenses. These are reimbursed by AIM, but only if we have an excess of cash in our account.

 

I am really excited to be done talking about money! Let us then move on to more important things, like prayer requests and trip preparations.

 

Prayer request: In a little less than a month Emmy and I will move back to STL for about 2 weeks, then fly out from there. Before we get back we will both be finishing up school and, Lord willing, graduate. I have all but finished up with classes, but Emmy’s nursing work continues unabated. Fun fact: Emmy passed her NCLEX prep test (required for graduation). The test predicts how likely you are to pass the NCLEX after graduation, Emmy is sitting with a 97% prediction of passing her boards! She is pretty dang smart. After we finish class and get all graduated, we will have about a week and a half to move all of our stuff into a storage unit or parental basement. Then come the tearful fare-thee-wells. Then we drive back to the greater Glen-Ed area. Then we travel to Indiana for Amber and Alex’s wedding. Then we come back to Glen Carbon/ Edwardsville. Then we pray as Emmy PASSES her NCLEX. Then we get on a plane and fly 7,931 miles from St. Louis to Kampala, Uganda! We’re so close… Well not geographically, but temporally!

 

Thank you all for your prayers of support!
