So...apparently, we are terrible at updating. We've been kind of just figuring this out...what exactly is "blog worthy"?? haha. So, now that we are at training, we thought we had something to update.
If you haven't guessed already...we're at training. Mission Training International is outside of Colorado Springs. Needless to say, this is probably the perfect place to "get away" and prepare for the crazy year ahead of us: PERFECT weather, GORGEOUS scenery, and some really COOL missionary friends. We have both said "It's just SO pretty" like 80 times a day. Each. Our favorite part so far is being with people that are in the exact same stage as we are. For a little while we thought we might be crazy, especially when people would ask us things like when we're leaving, where we're living, how we are going to raise support, and every other question you might have...and we would say, "Umm...we don't really know yet." What we've realized is that this is a common thread to all of our stories. We all know where we want to be, and kind of have an idea of what God wants us to do, but the process of getting there is pretty much always uncertain. We've said many times that the theme of our year has been FAITH. We're trusting that He will continue the work He has started in us.
We'll try to keep you updated the next few weeks.
