Winding Down

Our time to leave orientation is quickly approaching. It's hard to believe we have been here almost 2 months. This week we have had sessions regarding health issues on the field and maintaining relationships. Thursday we will all travel by bus to Washington D.C. and will have a time of interacting with our people groups. We will be partnering with another family and will attempt to have a witnessing experience.

Friday is our last shot day. It will be great to have that behind us. Incidentally, the last shot clinic did not go well. I don't think I posted about it, but on that particular day Christian was screaming in one room, and John Robert threw up in the main waiting area due to a stomach virus. Hopefully, this last one will go much better.

Next Wednesday there will be a special service as we are all commissioned to go to the field. This is sure to be a bittersweet time for all of us. We have built many friendships here, and many of these friends are going all over the world. Some, we may never see again, or at least no time soon. There are others who will be going to language school with us in Costa Rica, and we look forward to continuing these friendships. However, the goal was not to remain here in Rockville, VA but to be His witnesses in the uttermost parts of the world. These past few weeks have prepared us to do just that. I pray that we will all be found faithful.
