Getting there

Well I bought a duffle bag with wheels on it and I'm going to use the large suitcase on wheels that I already have and that'll keep me under the dimension restrictions for my checked luggage. Now all I have to do is pack them well. :D

I'm getting through all the craft prep without too much trouble. I even found some pony beads so now I can finish prepping my last craft.

Just over a month to go! Ack it's real now.

Visa Express

So on Tuesday I went to a workshop that was aimed at helping us apply for travel visa's for Kenya & Egypt. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be, but it was nice to have somebody at hand that we could ask questions of. They are also going to double check all the applications for us and then send them off to Ottawa to each embassy. That's  a real load off my shoulders now.

Well I had my final appointment at the Travel Clinic yesterday. I got one shot in the right arm and two in the left. One for Yellow Fever, one for Hepatitis A&B and another for Tetanus and a host of other stuff. My left arm is a little sore, but otherwise I'm feeling pretty good. What's left for this month? I need to submit a request to get a police records check because I'll be volunteering with the church and working with kids. I need to apply for entry visas for Egypt and Kenya. I need to finish preparing craft kits for my team. Still need to pick up some luggage and then sit down and figure out how to fit everything in to it. Then I need to get some American cash for tipping in Egypt and Kenya, they like new unworn bills so somehow I need to get my hands on a bunch of fresh $1 bills. I have no idea how I'm gonna accomplish that.

I just received a note from the World Outreach committee at Wishing Well Acres Baptist Church to say that they will be sending a check in support of my trip. It will be welcome. It'll go a long way to covering the vaccinations and visas I require. God has certainly provided for me financially.

Praise the Lord!
