One Week from Today

We can't believe it...just one week from today and we'll check into the airport with our one way tickets in hand and be on a flight back to Kenya. Wow. Its so hard to believe how time flies and how God brings things to pass so quickly. It seems like just yesterday that we were praying so hard that Dennis would be able to get through immigration and into the States in time for our wedding day 9 months ago. And now all of our support has been raised and we are headed to where and what God has called us both to do. What an amazing journey it has been let me tell you!!!! Our entire relationship and now marriage has been one big journey, and one transition after another. Its been fun and crazy and stressful all at the same time. And now with one week left in the States comes more excitement, joy, some more stress, and lots of mixed emotions.

Even with the excitement of finally being ready to go, the Goodbyes and see you laters are never easy and the anticipations and unknowns of whats ahead can be a little overwhelming. But one thing i know for sure, God has been with us through it all, and He is the one that has called us to go, and He is going with us, and He will never leave us. He has been our Rock and our ONE and ONLY consistency! No matter how many more transitions and how many more changes come our way HE NEVER CHANGES and HE WILL NEVER CHANGE! And for this I praise HIM and am thankful. ---Allison

We certainly relate to the conversation Moses had with God in Exodus 33:15-17
Then Moses said, “If you don’t personally go with us, don’t make us leave this place. How will anyone know that you look favorably on me—on me and on your people—if you don’t go with us? For your presence among us sets your people and me apart from all other people on the earth." The Lord replied to Moses, “I will indeed do what you have asked, for I look favorably on you, and I know you by name.”
