Countdown from 9 . . .

Tuesday morning Bible study was awesome, as always.  It was good to be back as I had to miss the past couple of weeks.

A sandwich with Bev afterwards where we could talk about our upcoming mission trip.  9 days to go and counting down!  We've been talking and planning for so long and now it's down to days -- in single digit days!

We have a tentative schedule from Maui and it looks good.  Their church will bring our dinner meals to us each evening.  Since 6 of the 10 of us are staying right at the facility we are helping rebuild and are up in the mountains, bringing dinner will be great!  We won't have to clean up, drive down into the city and find a place to eat.  The church also plans on stocking the local refrigerator with more than enough foods that we can make our own breakfast and lunches on site.

They also sent a list of all the things that still need completed.  At first look it seems like a really long list considering they plan on opening the doors for residents and employees by September 1st.  And although it's nice to have the list, we will make decisions on what we will be doing once we get there and can put our own eyes to the projects.  Of the many things we have learned -- we don't "assign" project tasks to other volunteers.  Each of us will take a look and make our own decisions on what we can and will work on.  So the list is great but for now it's just a guide.

It seems Sunday will be our day to have some fun.   After church that morning we hope to hop into the vehicle they are providing for us and take a tour of the island, beaches and views and all.  Should be alot of fun for all of us.

So we continue to fine tune our plans and continue to pray for God's will to be done, for wisdom in our decisions and choices and thanking Him for using each of us -- just a bunch of broken vessels -- for His glory and purposes!

Until next time . . . how is He using you?                                Susan and Monty

Wow! This sounds like an adventure in the making. I look forward to hearing all about it (and seeing pictures) when you return. We MUST get together after your trip!
