We received a wonderful answer to prayer today. Steven was accepted to Rift Valley Academy (RVA), the boarding school near Nairobi that we have been hoping he could attend for his last two years of high school. We are incredibly grateful to the Lord for meeting this need, as this was the last major hurdle for us to return to Kenya.
Our support has also been rising consistently as several more friends have committed to joining our support team for the next two years. We are within just a few hundred dollars a month to reaching our full support level.
I have wept a few tears of joy and thanksgiving today, and continue to marvel at how God is meeting our needs and confirming our calling to return to Kenya.
This week has been a fun time of R&R with the Chupp clan at Lake James, NC. We are seeing Mike's brothers, sister, mom and dad and their families for the last time before we leave the country. We are then heading to Chattanooga, TN to see my parents and brother's family until July 6th. We are flying from Chicago on July 9th at 5:15 p.m. and will arrive in Nairobi on the 11th. Please pray for the logistics of our travel, getting 24 pieces of luggage to airports, checked in, etc. and for traveling mercies for all of us!
Thanks again for your prayers. God is answering them. We'll write more soon.
