Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths. ~~Proverbs 3:5-6

Bon Voyage!

Yeah, I know - we aren't going on a cruise, but I couldn't think of another fancy travel term. Oh well.

I want to give a quick "shout out" to Allen (you can visit his wife's blog here). Allen saved our mission team about $550 by acquiring his church's van for us! Man, you ROCK! (The funny thing is - I don't know if he will ever see this because I don't know if they read my blog!)

Anyhoo - we will be pulling out tomorrow morning at 4 a.m. to arrive at the Atlanta airport at approximately 6 a.m. for our flight that is scheduled to depart at 8:45. Once we land in Montego Bay - we've got another 2 1/2 hours on a bus to the camp where we are staying. Please, please, please - keep us in your prayers for safety (among other things as well).

I can't wait to get lots of awesome pictures to share (preferably lots with my VERY white daughter, with some VERY Jamaican kids!)!

OK folks, start praying for us.....we leave this Saturday (yes, how romantic that we get to travel ALL day on Valentine's Day!) for our Jamaica mission trip. How do you like Abby in her Rastafarian hat and braids? If you are at all interested in who we're working with, where we will be staying, etc then go here.

Oh, and I don't ever recommend books, but I am currently reading "Lifestories" by Mark Hall (lead singer of Casting Crowns), and yikes - I feel like he has me by the shoulders and is shaking some "Christian sense" into me. Some of the truths he just lays out there, and it is pretty eye-opening! If you can get hold of a copy of it - please do, and you can thank me later!

Do you have any book recommendations for me?
