17 Days 'Til PNG!!!!

Ok, my trip is getting really close! Only 17 more days!!! I got my itinerary and pictures of my teammates recently. It's so cool to see the people that I've been praying for. I'm departing from Buffalo, NY's airport on July 2 at 6:10 AM which means we have to be at the airport around 4:00 AM. Ugh! Then I'm flying to Atlanta, GA then to LA where I'll meet my team. We'll leave LA at around 11:00 PM that same night for PNG. A praise is that a college student from NY is flying with me so I won't have to navigate Atlanta alone. I've never flown before and get confused really easily so if you could pray for me that I'd get through the airports without any trouble. It seems so unreal to me that I'm leaving in less than 3 weeks! I've wanted to do this since I was 10, so why the apprehension? But the Lord is so faithful to me and He will take care of me and my teammates.
Onto other news. Well, not really news, just a recitation of what our family's been up to lately. This weekend was really busy. We had some friends over and went to a graduation party. We also cleaned up some of our church property that was really overgrown and even hung a swing up! Here are some pictures:

So the countdown begins! My darling girl, I am already missing you so much! And panicing a bit. But God is giving me strength (in spite of little Cesar Coyote-Medina...) "The Lord is my Refuge and Strength, a very PRESENT help in time of trouble." and "I will lift up mine eyes to the hills from whence cometh my Help. My Help is in the Lord, Maker of heaven and earth." We don't need any more than that, do we? I love you more than there are drops of water in the ocean you are flying over. And that's a LOT!!!

Very cool! I pray that God will keep you safe when you leave for PNG! That is so cool by the way that you are serving God in some where other than the USA! Although serving God in the USA is becoming harder and harder! Praying for you! Glad you were able to take care of the overgrowness!
