April 27, 2011

and the countdown is on

We decided on a departure time: September.

We don't have an exact date, but at least we now have a timeframe.

We'll see how it all unfolds. Any number of things could happen to keep us from going in September, but at least now we are shooting for something. But once we give our 3 months notice on the house, there's no turning back. Argentina or bust.

Tony and I just realized the other day that we only have a couple hundred dollars in the mission fund (a little ratty envelope where we keep cash marked "mission fund") to do this. We don't have our tickets, or the money for tickets, we don't have the money to ship our stuff, or the car, or... uh... anything. And we don't have a savings or retirement or investments to help us out. Or a job waiting there yet either.

So, uh, yeah, I think we're a little bit o' crazy. I think you have to be a little bit o' looney to do what we're doing - or you just wouldn't do it.

If we are out of our mind, it is for the sake of God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. (NIV)

If it seems we are crazy, it is to bring glory to God. And if we are in our right minds, it is for your benefit. (NLT) ~ 2 Cor. 5:13

Ok, so if Jesus could do the "fishes and loaves" thing, He can do the same with you mission fund! I will be praying for that very same outcome for you.
