The Final Two Weeks (in pictures)

July 13, 2015

These last two weeks of rest have been so amazing and exactly what we needed.  Tomorrow morning we board a plane to Congo.  So, today in the waiting, I found a few minutes to share some photos with you that we took these past two weeks…

The first week was in southern France, near the Spanish border, with the Potter family, who will be living and working in Vanga, a little over an hour east of us by MAF plane in Congo.

This is the mountain we all drew as children, isn't it?  Just so you know, it exists in Switzerland.

Don’t stop praying!  27 hours from now, we will be landing in Kinshasa!
