Start Spreadin' the News...

It's time to shape up and ship out! That's right the date is set. Sunday, February 4th at 6:30 am I take to the air. I will be arriving in Zambia on February 13th at 6:50am. "Good Heavens to Mergatroid," you might be saying to yourself, "I knew it was a long flight, but I didn't know it was that long!" Well...it is! Just kiddin', I'm making a stop in Toronto (or as the young people like to say, "The T-Dot"), long story. So if you have any connections there or there abouts let me know, or I really may be sitting on the streets with my sign! Then it's off to Zambia on the 11th, arriving on the 13th where I will hit the ground running into orientation which starts that morning. So here I am, pretty pumped, a little nervous, trusting God. Thanks to all of you who have come along with me thus far and in the words of the Carpenters: "We've only just begun".

ps. feel free to drop me a "comment" some time so I know who actually reads this thing!

I read your blog of course, just not as often now that I have a new job though :) I'm waiting on pins and needles for you to post your professional Christmas sweater photos with your supervisor! I hope to see them soon! The pictures with your sister were awesom e too - my favorite - the catolgue shot! You're sure going to be missed!
