Earlier this week, I received word from Latin America Mission clearing me to start the preparations for moving to Peru! Airline tickets have been purchased for Wednesday, June 8th and a few days later, I will greet my first work team and head up to the jungle!
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be busy getting ready to move to South America. This means going to Miami to sign paperwork with LAM, two weddings, a short vacation with family, wrapping up various things in Dearborn, and figuring out exactly how to pack for a three-year move!
Even though I have been cleared to deploy to Peru, I am still just a few percentage points away from being fully supported. To be fully-supported, I am in need of $300 per month. If you have been waiting until I have a departure date to support my work, now is the time! Please fill out a pledge card, mail it to LAM and help me become fully supported.
A lot of changes are going to happen over the next few weeks and I am excited about each one!
Stay tuned for updates about a Commissioning Service at First Presbyterian, how to pack for three years, and other developments as I prepare to depart for Peru.

So excited for you!!! don’t know if you have figured out what to pack in, but we found these great footlockers, they are the max dimensions for checked luggage and they are much cheaper than suitcases.
