And We're Off!

We head out tonight for Indiana around 10ish:). Please pray for safety on the road. I say that because last June my sister and brother-in-law drove up from Florida to attend my brother's wedding. They left on the following Wednesday and about 3:30 Thursday morning we got a phone call saying they were in a car accident in Georgia that totaled their car. Thankfully no one was injured, but I always tense up when I hear *night driving* because of that accident. But I know the Lord gives perfect peace!

Last night I overheard one of the young ladies in the youth group say to my niece, "Now I'm gonna cry tomorrow just so you are prepared." I think that pretty much sums up the feelings of today. It's hard to believe after being here for 20 years they're leaving. But as missionaries like to say, they would rather be in the center of God's Will hundreds of miles away from everyone, than with everyone and completely outside of God's Will... I'll be back next week:o).
