The Last Few Days Before Moving Overseas

We are getting so close to our departure date and only have three sleeps left in the United States. Over the next two days we will be concentrating on packing and saying goodbye to family.

There are many emotions running high right now. We are excited about moving to a new place and the experiences and opportunities ahead. At the same time, we are experiencing the sadness of saying goodbye to family. We consider ourselves fortunate to have such wonderful, supportive families. Their encouragement has been essential to us these past few months. We are truly blessed!

Our current state of packing is a bit of a challenge…


Packing to live overseas


As you can probably see, we are in need of prayer!


  1. See-you-laters: Please pray that our goodbyes will be meaningful and thorough.
  2. Emotional/Spiritual state: Pray for our emotional and spiritual state as we prepare to move. We need to rely on God and each other for comfort.
  3. Packing: We have a lot of stuff and a limited amount of suitcase room! Pray we will be able to prioritize what to take to Turkey.


Thank you!
