Preparing for Travel

Well, Jolea's bag is packed and ready to go! All I have left to pack is mine and Joey's. I feel like I have packed a complete pharmacy, but I would rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

8 families received travel approval last Friday and will be leaving this week. 2 of the families are traveling to Kien Giang. So we will be getting updated pictures very soon and also an updated height and weight. The last weight we had was from December so I'm very curious to see how much she has grown. This will probably be the last pictures we receive. The pictures to follow will be taken by my camera! Our program director and in country staff think we will travel very soon after this group. So please everyone be in prayer that we receive "the call" very soon. When we do receive "the call" we are going to be leaving very quickly. We are not going to get the typical 10 day to 2wk. travel notice. We will be leaving early so that we can spend a couple of days visiting her before we take her from the orphanage. She is probably going to have a hard time leaving her caregiver. I'll keep you updated and you all will know as soon as we get the call!
