saying goodbyes and looking forward
This morning was the last time we walked with the boys to school and while they were enjoying their last morning with their friends (their choice! we asked them if they would like to come to our graduation and they preferred going to camp with their friends one last day), we celebrated with our friends and teachers our graduation from Instituto de Lengua Española (ILE) or The Spanish Language Institute! What a good morning. There were lots of tears as we said our goodbyes, as we heard tributes given to us graduates by our teachers, and as we worshipped together for one last time.
And, now we are looking forward! Our bags are packed. We are ready. We are nervous. And we are excited! We are anticipating our first glimpses of our new country, our first meetings with new friends, and praying that God fills us with His love as we go.
Please continue to pray!
