Ready? SET? GOOOO!!!

Its Sunday evening and I(Kelly) am getting ready to turn in.
The bags are packed and the travelers are about as ready as they can be.

Who's going?  
My hubby--- pastor of New Hope Fellowship church and Physical Education teacher
at Friendship Valley Elementary.  (wonderful hubby of 25 years)
Our oldest daughter, Karli --  graduate of Palm Beach Atlantic University and event coordinator/field agent for "The Hunger Strike".
Karli's husband, Matthew--- graduate of Palm Beach University and programs cultivator/field agent for "The Hunger Strike".

We will be heading to Dulles airport in the early am so they can catch their United flight direct to Beijing around noon.  They will be sitting in economy plus which is the extra 6 inches of legroom.....it is also deserted and all of them are hoping to get a row to sleep in!  There are about 40 rows and only 20 passengers in that section.
Well worth the extra bucks in my opinion.
They will arrive in BeiJing around 3:30 pm on TUESDAY.

SO-- this leg of the journey begins.........we are so very excited to have you along for the journey.  We covet your prayers for our boys who are getting ready to have their world turned upside down.  Bill and I know it is better for them to have a family but all they know is what they have now and it is everything.

 Also, my bestest buddy and sister-in-Christ, Angela, will be guiding and representing us at our appointments.  I am saddest that I will not be able to see her.....it breaks my heart after how much she has done for our family.  I am praying I get to go see her sometime before 2012 is out.

So, I leave you with this verse....as the week begins and our lives will be forever changed by the addition of Elijah, this week and Jack, next week!!
 

Hebrews 12:1-3    New International Version (NIV)

 1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
