Hi everyone! We are in Edinburgh with limited wifi access. The flight was awesome. We have a cute apartment and a really nice land lady. We will be setting up wifi and getting phones soon we hope and will get our US phone number to everyone as soon as we can! Love to all… Cheers!!!



It seems like so much has happened in such a short space of time and yet we’ve been itinerating for two years!

We sent the information in for our Visas before Christmas and expected that it would be early January before we received approval. The Visas went into the consulate on 12/27/12 and we received approval 12/28/12. God’s timing is perfect no matter how long it takes to get it done.

We now have our plane tickets in hand and we leave 1/14/13. We will arrive in Edinburgh 1/15/13 in the morning and cannot wait to get going!

We are currently looking for apartments, Dave and Julie Goldschmidt have been helping us out with that and, as of the writing of this newsletter, might just have found one that will work for us. Please pray that we will make the right decision on this as we have to make it quickly. We want God’s perfect will for our lives.

We know beyond a shadow of any doubt that God has been in control of this entire process especially during the times that it seemed that we would never make it. Even though the winds blow, the waves crash, and the storm rages, you can still walk on water when your focus is Christ. He is in control regardless of any circumstance.

Our flight takes off at 1:01 pm from Syracuse airport on the 14th. If you’re in the Syracuse area and you’d like to come say goodbye, feel free! We’ll arrive sometime around 11 am so that we can hug your necks. Thank you for giving and for praying and now we GO!!!

In Christ and for His Glory,
