3 Weeks and Counting!

Greetings! Things are coming together smoothly as we prepare for our September 5 takeoff. We have had a great response from family and friends in supporting our trip in a myriad of ways. What a gift to feel the love, support and investments of others. We are finalizing the last minute details on health insurance, have one last round of shots and are learning lots about what the IRS expects from those that are volunteering abroad!

We are currently living with Mandy's parents in Puyallup, WA and housesitting for friends from church for the month of August. Mandy and I will celebrate our 1 year anniversary tomorrow and we head to Vancouver, BC to join our cousins for a wedding reception.

Our emails will not change throughout this process and our phones will not be switched off until September 6. We'd love to hear from you!

Joel and Mandy
