and the official countdown is...11 days!

and the official countdown is...11 days!

This past weekend, we finally received the go-ahead to buy our plane tickets to Okinawa!

And so on Saturday morning, with much joy, we went online and purchased our tickets to depart from Omaha on February 20th!  

WE ARE SO EXCITED!  

It's finally time!  

Waiting on God's timing is so haard sometimes, but He knows best! And when He says the wait is over, boy does He mean it! The process which seemed to be going so slowly (to us) is now on the fast track, and we are just hanging on! 

 

I was overcome by powerful emotions when we got this note in the mail, along with the certificates which allow us to obtain our visas.

We have so much left to do in these last 12 days...trying to finish off the to-do checklist, last meetings/meals/coffee/games with friends and family, Jeremy's final day of work and Phin's last day of school, packing and then re-packing... 

 

But amidst our tears of joy(to finally be going where God has called us to be) and thankfulness(for all He has done to get us here/there) and sadness(of already missing our family and friends) we want to say: 

THANK YOU! 

-to everyone who has prayed for us 

-to everyone who has partnered(financially) with us 

-for every encouraging word when we were discouraged 

-to those who took every opportunity to spend time with us(even 5 minutes) 

THANK YOU! 

We cherish you and your prayers...for us and the unreached of Okinawa! 

 

And we want to go out with a bang...so we will be having a going away party!

From social media this month:

[By Jeremy] Trying something new this month. Like it or hate it, social media is a major part of the way my generation communicates. I have been trying to embrace it and use it in meaningful ways. Here are a few things from this past month which I feel are worth passing along.
