Over the last few days we have thankfully been able to spend some great time visiting with family and friends. We had two commissioning services Sunday, in which the church prayed over our family. Today we went for one last trip to Atlanta for this summer and let the kids (and the adults) play in the fountains at Olympic Park. It was a fun day, and one we will hold in our memory for quite some time. This evening I (Ryan) was able to run with my running buddies one last time this year, and it meant the world to me to experience that one more time before leaving.
In less than twenty-four hours we will be thousands of feet in the air headed for a future we could have not imagined. A future far away from friends and family, but a future that God prepared us for. While tomorrow we will say “see you later”, we will thankfully be able to stay in touch and visit once a year. We are grateful for all of the people that have made this possible by giving of their time, prayers, gifts, support, talents, and encouragement along the way. Your love, prayers, and support are comforting and confirming for us. Going forward we are excited, anxious, and ready to get settled in our new home in Uganda. Please pray that our children will do well on the long trip, and we are all able to get rest along the way. Please also pray for our family. We love you all.
May God be glorified in what lies ahead.
