It’s hard to believe that at this time, just two weeks from now, our team will be making our way to the Dominican Republic. There is still a lot to get done, but I’m happy to report that I’ve made some great progress.
I’m happy to share a praise report! After a roller coaster ride that last few weeks trying to get my immunizations updated and required prescriptions, it’s all handled. Thanks to my awesome PA Kari and her staff at the Veranda, I was able to get my shots in office or a prescription so, that I could get it from my pharmacy. A big thanks to U-Save-It Pharmacy, especially the Northwest and Dawson Road locations for taking great care of me.
It’s a busy June, so I’ve made my packing list and I’ve been slowly starting over the last couple of weekends to get things together. I try to be an early packer. I work in a very busy and fast pace environment so, most the time that only leaves me the weekends to get everything together. Also, there is nothing more that raises the excitement level as when you can start packing.
There are two things that you can specifically pray for at this time.
Pray for the team as we prepare mentally, physically, and spiritually for the trip.
Food is a concern for me at this time. Pray that I will have the right kinds of food to eat.
Wow, has the time flown by. It seems like yesterday that I made the decision to go on this trip and now we are almost a month before the trip. I thought that I would drop by and give you a quick update.
This week’s mission has been all about immunizations. What I thought was going to be an easy task has proved me wrong. It’s been almost 11 years since my last missions trip. The travel center that I have used previously has closed and since my records are so old they are not on our state’s immunizations website. This has caused some setbacks this week, but the good news is that I have an appointment with my regular doctor on Tuesday. Please pray that we can get these straighten out within the next week.
By the end of next week, I should hopefully have more information on our travel plans, itinerary, packing list, and any other needs for the trip.
How can you help?
Most importantly, I need your prayers that God will work in and through me during the trip.
Secondly, purchasing a T-Shirt or Ladies Tank. (Pre-Orders Only. All profits go directly to my trip.) The deadline to place and pay for your order is 5/21/17.
Third, any financial support you can give will be greatly appreciated. The deadline for tax deductible gifts has passed, however I can still accept non tax deductible gifts. This money would be used towards immunizations and associated travel cost.
