It was so fun to see all of your guesses as to where we will be going.
And a few of you guessed correctly!
We are praying, planning and preparing to go to
Tauranga, New Zealand
in early 2012.
The plan is to spend the next year and a half
seeking the Lord,
paying off debt,
praying, praying, praying,
growing in the Lord and His Word (the Bible),
being pruned and taught,
etc., etc., etc.
I am excited
and everything else in between.
I can't wait to see what God is going to use us to do for His Kingdom.
And I'm so humbled by the fact that He chooses to use sinful, broken nobody's like us to carry out His will.
More details on our journey as they come :)
