Sorry...it has been a while since I've updated you on our adventures. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures to show for it either. But I thought I'd just let everyone know that we're still alive and still plugging away towards our official indoctrination into MAF. We're actually packing up/selling a lot of our belongings as we'll be moving out of our apartment the end of this month. My parents have graciously offered to fly us out to Ohio so we can spend a few days with the family before all the craziness hits. We will be there until the 8th of July, visiting and have a grand time. And then, just like that, we'll be back in Vancouver, facing a 7 hour drive back down to MAF in Idaho for one more week of evaluation. At the end of that week, we'll receive our field assignment, so we will be able to tell everyone where we'll be serving. Following will be two weeks of orientation and two weeks of "ministry partnership" seminars. After that, we'll be driving to Colorado for the Boersma Family Reunion in the middle of August, and then on to the east coast, where we'll begin the support raising process. It's moving fast now!
My days now are spent usually packing and negotiating with people who would like to buy our belongings. Although, I'm writing this particluar entry from the lunch room at Moody Aviation in Spokane. Seems that some of the corporate members of Servant Wings wanted to use us to fly out here for some meetings instead of drive (I don't blame them!). So I get to see many familiar faces and update everyone here on our whereabouts and what we're up to.
Now, I'm sure some of those plans I told you all about are leaving some questions and maybe even some confusion in your head about when we're actually going to be here or there and what we'll be up to in the next couple months. That said, we'd love for you to shoot us an email so we can answer your questions! We'd be delighted to hear from you. Our email address is
firstname.lastname@example.org So if you're unclear on any of that, let us know so we can clear up any mud! Thanks for the prayers and encouragement and financial support--we have a strong team behind us, and you are appreciated!
