Getting Ready in Hudson, OH

USA | Saturday, 14 June 2008 | Views [607] | Comments [10]

Hey everyone!

Yesterday (6/13) I met up with Mallory at her house in Pittsburgh, and from there we drove to Megan's home in Hudson, OH.  Megan, Mallory and I will be relaxing and getting our final things in order here until our flight leaves the Cleveland Airport tomorrow afternoon.  Billy boards his flight this evening.  Although it will be very difficult being away from all our family and friends for such a long time, we're all very excited that the trip is finally here!  After all our preparations, we're really eager to get to India.

Thank you all so much for your prayers and support.  God has blessed each of us with incredible family and friends, so once again, thank you!  We will try to update this blog as often as we can throughout the trip, so keep checking for new updates!  Please pray for us now as we travel, particularly Billy (since he's flying alone and we won't meet up with him until we get to Bangalore).  Pray that our flights will be smooth and that we will arrive safely in Salem.

God bless!





We all send our love from Pittsburgh. Kristen, Larry, Beth and Daniel send hugs - Beth wanted to know where you were at church today! Peace.

Hey Josh! So glad we can be a part of your time away! What an adventure you're in for. Enjoy seeing how God will use you.

Truly excited for all of you!! It will take me awhile to get used to being limited to email only. I'm sure I'll want to hear Megan's voice...so I've decided that I will pray every time I think of calling Meg on my cell phone. I look forward to hearing all about this wonderful trip.
Hugs and Kisses,
Mrs G (Mom)

It was so great to see you guys before you left. I am so excited for you and for all that God has in store for each of you this summer. I know that you are all going to come back changed. Keep trusting in His faithfulness - He'll never leave you nor forsake you. Praying for you!
