The countdown to Intake has begun

21 days and counting. That is how many days we have left until we leave for Intake. Needless to say everyone is getting a little excited! The kids are helping keep track of how many days we have left. They make sure to remind me if I forget to change the number on the board.

We have so much to do in such a few short weeks. We are praying that our house sells and that our auction on September 4th will go well. Apparently it is opening day for the Packers so we are hoping that people will still come out and support our cause.

We are still looking for mission partners to help support us with our call to missions!

Hopefully during the next three weeks we will be able to see all of our friends and family. We are definitely going to try. We also have to remember to take plenty of pictures of everyone put in our picture books that are coming with us. So don't be shy when the camera comes out.

Ruth and Malachi are looking forward to their First Communion on September 7th. We are so blessed to be able to share this special sacrament with family and friends before we leave!

I have included a new family photo that was taken for our local community paper. Can you see who made it in the center? That's right Jesus. Jesus is the center of our family just like He is the center of our photo. Without Him this wouldn't be possible. Praise God for what He has done and what He is doing in our lives!!!! -Katie
