In the Jungle, the Mighty Jungle

It is 6:45 in the morning and we are getting ready to pack all our stuff back into suitcases and get on the bus. We have a 6 hour drive that will take us to the river and the jungle and a long-awaited canoe ride that has been such a hot topic for months now. We will not have Internet access once we get to the jungle, so I'm getting a little crazy and setting this here post to publish itself tonight. Y'all let me know if it works. I know many of you are anticipating pictures of our team in our fabulous jungle clothes. It is going to be a rich experience, I'm sure. While you wait, check out this post by Sophie. She got to spend the entire day with her sponsor child, Wilter. I was just reading it and laughing out loud by myself like a hyena. She is the queen. Thanks again for following our trip, for your prayers, for your encouragement, and for your sponsorships. Much love!

Praying for you and all the others. I know God is using you for His glory to reach those living in poverty. There is SO much we can do to help. Thanks for being obedient and faithful!

P.S. Praying the canoe trip is one of the highlights of your life.
