It has been an exhausting and exciting past few days. Wednesday, October 24th we had a truck and crane come to SC to load up our container. Then we finished packing the UTV on the trailer and headed out for our 2 week trip to Florida and Mississippi. Our plan was to drive straight to Port of Palm, Praise the Lord we only needed to make one stop to an auto parts store for needed repairs and parts (an exhaust leak and change a trailer tire).
Nicky decided we needed to drive all night to get there by 6AM. We slept in the van for 1 1/2 hour before we had to meet up with our container to unload it at 8AM. It took a couple of hours in line to get our paper work done. It was kind of scary leaving all of our possessions like this but we trust it's in God's hands.
We stayed in south FL for a few days then headed to visit family in St Augustine for a couple of nights and going to Turning Point at Calvary church Sunday.
We have been praying for ways for us to have fun family time while traveling and the Lord blessed us with friends who have given us free tickets to the Disney Parks for the day. Xander and Ellie have never been and it has been 23 yrs since Nicky and I have been. This is going to be a treat for the kids to do something special as we drag them around constantly in this life we are living.
Please pray for our traveling schedule:
Tuesday head toward Mississippi
Missions Conference Thurs - Sat.
Sat. Headed back to Hendersonville for last Service at FBC Sunday
Go to SC Monday night
Go to last service at Northside in Laurens Wed. night

This gives a few things to pray for! Thank you for being a part of what God is doing thru our family!
|Packing in the last few things we can. not wasting a inch!!!!|
|screwing plywood on back to make sure nothing falls out|
|loading our container onto a tractor trailer. Was 480 lbs under|
what semi was allowed to carry. That was close.
For our travels as we leave FL going to Mississippi and have our missions conference the end of October thru first week of November the head to NC Saturday the 3rd then to SC the 5th and to Atlanta the 9th to fly out the 10th.
For our container and trailer to be sent quickly to Haiti and for us to be able to get them out of customs quickly and cheaply and back to our compound to set up our house. We will be in a apartment until this happens.
For our support to be 100% as we leave. We are at 73% right now!
