And Stuff...

We had a chance to go to Sarnia yesterday to visit my first year roommate from Heritage and her husband.  Natalie and Bruce live in this cute, Asian-style bungalow with an amazing view of the St. Clair River.  It was so nice to have more than a few moments to catch up with them, which is what has been happening over the past couple of years.  We even went cross the border to see some sights and eat dinner at Applebee's.  I'm glad we were able to go.

As some of you may have seen on FB already, Jake and I are getting a bit antsy about our trip.  We only have two more weeks (today!) until we go, and yet we still don't have our flights booked or our Brazilian visas (due to both minor and major complications).  It's been so hard to focus on Christ, and let Him lead like He's been doing.  

We were saying that it will be a miracle if we get on that plane on September 29, but when we do, we'll be leaning back (after the plane is completely at flying altitude, of course), reminiscing on these moments of anxiety and lack of faith.  

In other news, I haven't been reading many books lately, which saddens me.  I think books are a great way to expand imagination and broaden the mind.  I have been contemplating on how I'm going to do the whole 'book-reading' thing while I'm away.  Obviously I won't be able to borrow any from the library for that amount of time, and we won't have that much room if I were to bring books borrowed from friends. 

Any ideas?

Do you have an app on your phone? Androids have play books where there are a ton of books to browse and read for free! Just a thought :)

Hi Ash
So glad you had a chance to get together with your friends this past week end and spend some quality time with them.
It is good to be able to keep contacts with one another.

We continue to pray for all the necessary details for your trip and we pray that you will keep your focus on the Lord as you work through the final details.
God is good and He is always there!
Lots of love from Nana and Pops
