17 Jul

It is almost that time again.  We are in the home stretch now, getting ready to finally head back to Uganda.  We are excited to get home and dive back into ministry with our friends there, but we are also sad to say goodbye to life in Portland.

We bought our return tickets – we are heading out on the 8th of August.  We have a couple of weeks left to say our final goodbyes.

Part of the process is packing, re-packing, and carefully weighing each bag to make sure we can fit all the most important things, like shelf stable bacon bits of course.  We have also had a lot of friends and family ask if there is anything we need to take back with us.  Things often slip our minds, so we put together an Amazon wishlist to help us keep track of all the last minute items that we want to make sure to take back with us.

I am posting the wishlist here in case you want to help out with something.  If you make a purchase off the list, it will automatically check it off the list so other people don’t accidentally double buy something.  Please let us know if you need our mailing address.  There are some items on there specifically for our ministry and there are a few personal things on there as well.

Thanks so much to all our friends and family who have made this furlough a real treat for us.  We appreciate all your love and support.  We are planning a little goodbye get-together for the 5th of August – details to be announced soon!  We would love to see you then.

      Thanks Shirley! Yep, that is the address. I also just added it to the wish list so it should show up automatically at checkout.
