Countdown: 2 weeks

I can't believe we only have 2 weeks left before we enter the MTC! We are getting excited but have not had much time to really ponder the reality of living in Africa for 2 years. I have been cleaning out drawers, cupboards, and closets. I had no idea I was such a pack rat! We have been spending time with the grand kids and making memories to last me the next 2 years. I also decided I needed to get a new family picture seeing that the last picture was missing 2 of the 3 grand kids. We had a photographer come to the back yard and take our picture. I also had her take separate pictures of the kids for me to take with me to Ghana. Dave bought a laptop, webcam and set up skype on the laptop and our home computer. So we will be able to watch our beautiful grandchildren grow from across the world. Thank goodness for modern technology. My first picture will be one of my loving and supportive family.

  2. Dear Dave and Margaret,

    How wonderful to have found your blog off of Marci's! This will be so amazing to see and be a part of your incredible experiences you are sure to have. I want you to know what wonderful examples and people you two have been to me and my family. We admire you both sooooo much, and are so humbled by your decision to serve the Lord for 2 years. Bless you both! You will be in our prayers. Thinking of you.
