For those of you who don’t already know, in just under a month, I will be leaving for a week on a short-term mission trip to Nicaragua. My church supports missionaries there, and we will be visiting some of the projects going on as well as visiting a couple of rural villages and showing them the “Jesus video” in their native language. For a little more information on that, you can read the support letter I sent out a couple of months ago.
I am excited and thankful to say that I have raised the support I needed to pay for the trip, and outside of packing and finalizing childcare arrangements while I am gone, I am ready to go. Last week I went and got my immunizations and my malaria medication at Passport Health. If you are travelling internationally, I highly recommend using them. They’re probably not the cheapest, but they know their stuff and can advise you on all aspects of your trip. And I know the typhoid vaccine they gave me is good, because I’m pretty sure I’m having some mild typhoid symptoms, if you know what I mean. If you don’t, you’re probably better off.
We have another meeting about our trip coming up in the next two or three weeks, so I’ll probably post an update after that. I’m leaving September 18 and returning on the 25th, and I could really use your prayers that our trip is successful and safe, and that we are adequate representatives of God’s love while there. And I could also use them for my family while I am gone, that they would be safe and not too anxious about me.
Thanks for your support, and I’ll update you as more information comes up. Whether it’s interesting or not. And definitely if my typhoid meds act up any more.
