We are leaving for our missions trip day after tomorrow. Our team had a meeting this evening where we had final assignments given, rules of conduct reinforced and schedules discussed. It was a good meeting and all the teens seemed receptive and excited. There are 16 people going (including the littlest missionary - Esther).
My role will be Mom to all - a job that will be a natural fit, for sure :0)!! I was asked to do a specific job that made me laugh inside - I've been asked to be in charge of... wait for it.... wait for it...the LAUNDRY!!!!!!!!! Hahaha!!!!! Even on a missions trip halfway around the world (Ahem well, maybe not quite that far). I did say I would go with an attitude of service - so there you go - I got a job I know how to do!!!!
A really cool bonus on this trip is that the girls get the use of a beach house for all our needs!!! It's going to be great for all the obvious reasons - BEACH HOUSE - but in reality this is a big answer to prayer as I will be able to meet Esther's needs (nighttime nursings etc.) much easier and with more privacy.
So, off to more packing and repacking. I'm still craving your prayers covering this event.
