Saying Goodbye....for now.

I can't believe we are leaving for Chad in 2 days......I feel like our departure date has snuck up on me! It has been an awesome whirlwind of a visit these past 6 months.....lots of friends, family, fun things to do and yummy food to eat! We have had our fill, and feel refreshed and ready to head back to our life in Chad.
The beauty of a Canadian Fall

As I type this, Phil is knee deep in suitcases, trying to make the last little things fit and not send the baggage weight over and have to pay the ridiculous fees for that! We have stocked ourselves with some things we can't buy in Chad like......yumminess from Canada (Reese peanut butter cups!!), toiletries, art supplies, clothing, some birthday and Christmas gifts, toys/books for Evie and other baby stuff that she will need, some DVD's for our Friday night movie night tradition, spices and mixes for the kitchen, books for Kaitlyn to read (she is progressing into chapter books) and a slew of other things we will need for the next two years.

We have been blessed by so many of you during our time here.....the generosity that has been shown to us has been A-MAZING! Just another reminder how God always takes care of us....our needs are fully met and we are so thankful for that.

Words cannot express how much we will miss our families and friends....but we are so thankful for the time we had with so many. Lord willing, we will be able to better connect with people via skype, facebook and blog updates (a trip to the hotel for a $6 coke and 'free' internet will be in order!).....and hope to send more pictures and even some video of our life in N'Djamena.

I better get back to helping Phil with the packing....hope I can find him in among all those suitcases!

We'll see ya'll in 2 years!
