Jesika and the rest of the "Guat Girls" safely returned from their Guatemala trip yesterday, and now final preparations are underway for Malawi. In the past couple of days, we have received our textbooks, secured missions insurance and have our contracts signed and in place, so now we're all ready to send Jesika and Leyana off to start our missions work in Malawi!
For those of you in Illinois, or at least within driving distance of Bloomington, IL, we wish to extend an invitation to you to come on out tomorrow (Saturday August 25th) afternoon between 3 and 6pm to enjoy some fellowship and a spaghetti dinner with us at Fairway Knolls Church of the Nazarene, 610 IAA Drive, Bloomington, IL. We are not charging for dinner, but a donation basket will be available and all donations will be put towards our expenses on the field. If you'll be attending and haven't done so already, please drop Jesika an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make sure we have enough food prepared for everyone!
For those of you on our prayer chain, you will start receiving emails for your designated day to pray shortly. If you would like to be added to the list, please send an email to Jesika or me, letting us know which days you would like to sign up for.
I would like to request all pray for us during the next couple days especially as we make these final preparations. Jesika and Leyana fly out at 6am Monday morning and 3 flights later, land in Lilongwe at 12:25pm (local time) Tuesday afternoon. Pray for traveling mercies and for swift adjustment to the new timezone. Pray also that God would prepare the students for the courses that we are to teach and that he would help us to adapt our teaching methods to the needs of these students. Finally, pray for Leyana as she enrolls in school in Malawi, that she would adapt quickly and make friends.
Many thanks and blessings to you!
Anthony and Jesika
