Well, the countdown is on.  After months of preparation, we are just over four weeks away from getting on a plane and heading off to Zambia.  I have officiallly wrapped up my work at Loblaw, and now spend my days packing up our house to get ready for the big move.  Julianne has been working hard to prepare, among other things, clothing in 3 years worth of sizes for two growing boys.  She is now getting in a few final days of supply teaching and enjoying a brief season where Daddy gets to make the boys’ lunches and get them bundled up for school every day.

We want to say a big thank you to all of you for the support you have given to help us get to this point.  You have shared words of encouragement, donated money, offered storage space, and provided practical support in countless other ways.  We couldn’t have done it without you.

This blog is the place to follow along with our family as we serve at Macha International Christian School (MICS).  We will add a few updates on our preparations over the next month, and then begin to post more frequently once we actually land in Zambia in the middle of January.  If you want to be notified of new posts by email, scroll to the bottom of this page and click the “Follow” button.  Or just add us to your favourite news reader.

Thanks for reading.  Lots more to come…
