It’s pretty likely that this will be a highly emotional week at our house. The house is looking more and more barren. Silas says his room is “bald.” Next Saturday we move out of the house. We have a lot of good memories here, which we’ve been remembering as we’ve looked at our pictures of the last seven years. Eliza does not want to leave Thailand and I have to keep reminding myself that her feelings are so different from mine. I’m going home but she’s leaving home. Lots of tears. We have been praying together that God will help us to trust him to provide for our needs and take care of us when we feel really sad.
This week, would you please pray for emotional energy for the good-byes and physical energy for the move itself- its’ so, so hot and it’s really draining doing all this work! This morning I got 4 of the 10 suitcases “finalized” so that felt like good progress. I have a few more underway that aren’t done yet. There are lots of details to take care of before we leave, and many more good-byes to come. Several guys (Lan, Lan, Piak) are traveling down to spend time with us before we go. We have our final good-bye party on the 26th at a restaurant, hosted by Dan and our team. We will really miss our friends and team.
Thanks for thinking of us during this week of major change and lots to get done. We so appreciate the people who have been in touch and have been encouraging us through it. Excited to see many of you soon!
