hey everyone... i haven't written in a couple of weeks, so i'm writing to update you all on what has been going on with us. we have all been home for the last week and a half. beth is in texas, glenna in colorado, cally in montana, susan in arkansas, whitney in oklahoma, and myself in florida. we will all be home till may 15th, that's when we leave!! during this month we'll be visiting family, updating our churches about what is coming up, and raising support. the next couple of weeks will be bitter sweet. bitter because it's going to be hard to say good bye to our families and friends. but way sweet because it'll be closer and closer to the time we leave. thank you to all of you who have been so supportive in one way or another! we thank God for you. until next time...

so we have great news.... they found the rest of our visa stuff today! God is so good like that! now they can begin the visa process. please be praying that they accept all of our stuff and we get our visas! well we got back to lubbock yesterday. it was so good to see all of our classmates. i missed them so much and we were only gone for a week! i can't imagine what it's going to be like leaving them for 2 years! we only have a week left together. it's hard to believe that 8 months has already gone by. it feels like just yesterday i was walking into the AIM classroom with my mom for registration. this week is like our goodbye week. today we had a final speech from the director of the whole sibi school, then had a thing called remember when. it was a great time to remember some pretty funny things that have happened over the past 8 months. well thanks for all the prayers about our visa papers!

so i haven't written on here in a while, my apologies. we have been so busy these last few weeks. right now we are wrapping up our march madness trip. this madness started back in early march with a week long camp adventure. then on the 19th we left for arlington, stayed there for a few days. then traveled to childress. we got to spend a few days there just helping out in the community. after that we drove to tulsa for the soul winning workshop. i have never heard of the workshop until a few weeks ago. we got to listen to some great teachers, it was pretty neat. after the workshop we went to dewey, ok. for a day. then drove to yukon for a day. we left yukon monday and all of the teams were sent out to different cities for our aim challenge week. for challenge week the teams are told the name, address and contact number of a church and told to find their way there. we stay with the church for a week serving, helping out, basically doing what they need us to do. the zambia team was sent to midland, texas. we'll be here until monday then we are going back to lubbock. i never thought i'd say this, but i am ready to go back! so this week we all bought our plane tickets... i have to say it was pretty exciting. it just makes the whole thing more real, although i'm not sure it will actually hit me that i am moving to zambia until i step off the plane. we've had some trouble with our visa stuff. we sent our papers through the wrong company and now they may be lost. so please pray that we will either find them or get new ones that will make it there in a decent amount of time. also pray for us as we wrap things up in lubbock and go back home to our famlies and friends. if you have ever had to say good bye to any one close to you then you know that this will be very hard for us. know that we appreciate all of your support and love.
