A Little South Sudan Update...

As we continue to prepare our family for our move to South Sudan, God continues to remind me daily that THIS. Is. NOT. About. Us.

Not to us, O LORD, not to us, But to Your name give glory Because of Your lovingkindness, because of Your truth. ~Psalm 115:1

Along with all the normal daily stuff that goes on in a family of 11, our days seem to be filling more and more with things related to our move. We are spending time connecting, fundraising, & educating ourselves. We realize that for God to use us in the most effective way we need to know as much as we can about the country we are moving to and we spend a little time everyday reading South Sudan news; educating ourselves on the government, religious, industry and culture of the place that has stolen our hearts. The place where God has chosen to take us next. We are excited about what God is doing, we are thrilled that God is bringing just the right people to be apart of what we are doing. We are grateful for those that are already covering us in prayer as we continue to prepare & blessed that so many of you are following and encouraging us.

A little of This. A little of that.
 South Sudan...

*The Most Exciting news is We. Have. Our. One-way tickets x10!!!! Not only were we able to place a deposit to hold them, we got a God-sized incredible deal!! We are looking for anyone interested in sponsoring a plane ticket or two;)

*Our DONATION page is officially up! CLICK HERE to see how you can partner with us.

*I attended the Cultural Competency & Global Midwifery Skills in Albuquerque taught by Vicki Penwell. It was great! It opened my eyes even more to the Mortality & Morbidity of Woman and Children all over the world & confirmed my passion for ministering to the Women and their babies & children.

*If you haven't seen Half The Sky. You should check it out.

*Our non-profit "Neema" ("Grace" in Juba Arabic) is coming together, complete with board members & a website in the works.

*My partner in crime Megan Elkins & I attended GMHC Global Medical Health Conference. Holy Cow ya'll, it was spectacular! Seriously, it was so cool to be in a place with so many other like minded medical people. It was amazing to connect with people from all over the world with the same passion for reaching the unreached and loving them through medicine. We learned so much and made so many great friends. And we had hours of plotting & planning time. It was great!

*We got this little girlie to use to teach Helping Babies Breath. She's gonna save lives ya'll!
