It’s official! Our flights our booked to leave Edmonton on January 15, 2013 and make our way to our new home in Burundi, Africa! We have been talking about this and planning for years and now it’s only 10 weeks away…it feels so surreal! We have been so blessed to be able to take time to spend with family and friends and are working to wrap things up over this next little while. We thank you so much for all of your prayers! With little time left before we go, we are still needing to raise a substantial amount of money. We need to raise money for solar panels for the clinic, a community garden for the orphanage, money to be able to sent over a container of medical supplies, money to finish the guesthouse, and costs for the clinic, etc. Please think about those in Burundi who desperately need your help. We would love for you to come along side us, not only in prayer, but as a financial support in order to better the lives of the Burundian people. It is such a cool thing to be a part of! If you feel led to support our efforts in Burundi in a financial manner, please click on the “donate” button on the home page of our blog. Tax receipts will be provided. If you have any questions or would like to speak with us, please feel free to contact us. We would love to meet with you as well! I posted the last bunch of our photos to share from our trip to Burundi this past summer (if you are reading this from e-mail, you will be able to see all of the photos if you go to the original blog site). Enjoy!

When Josh was very sick and stuck in his room for a week, I brought him a baby goat from the field to cheer him up…it worked!

We became good friends…
…I don’t think they did…

A first peek at the clinic…
Yes…he is carrying about 40 mattresses on his head…and he is jogging.
The most recent state of our new home! We will be able to house about nine or so volunteers at a time, in addition to the two of us! Haha, who wants to come visit?
