We are just a week away from flying to Kenya. Everything is coming down to the wire. We had our packing party on Saturday. We packed 32 of the 80 bags we will arrive at the airport with on the day we leave. Can you imagine 16 team members arriving at Detroit Metro Airport with 79 suitcases and one guitar on the day before Thanksgiving. We covet your prayers especially on this day. Prayers for speedy and easy entry into the airport, and that all suitcases will weigh in under the 50# allowed. We are prepared for the stress and craziness that can't be avoided, but trust the Lord to open the way for us so all will go smoothly and according to His plans.
I share with you a few of our photos from the packing party. It was a fun evening. Who would have thought everything we collected for the mission work would actually fit into the suitcases we are allowed. For each of our teams it always looks this way, but miraculously God makes it all fit and weigh what it needs to. God is good all the time. When it's God's plan all will work out to the good.
Special thank you to Steve's Pizza for preparing four large pizzas for our team to enjoy at the end of the packing. We enjoyed a short time of relaxing and good fellowship before heading home. All in all it was a great packing party.
