As most of you know by now, Gary and I are going on an adventure. It's hard to believe but the time is getting very close. I have 3 days of work left, Gary has 5 and it's 11 days until we leave for Winnipeg for orientation and then JAPAN!!!!

Getting to where we are today has already been an adventure and challenge. We went from being an average Canadian with wanting everything we didn't have to being a not so average Canadian and resigning from both our jobs and giving up everything that we had.

We have been asked a lot of questions along the way, and I must admit that we don't have answers for a lot of them. But one thing we do know is that we are stepping out in Faith and that God will never leave or forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6). And that he will direct our paths (Proverbs 3:6)
We have seen how real God is in every step of the way. He has provided for our trip financially, this last week he Blessed us with the most perfect people for our house. And he has made letting go of all our "possessions" so much easier. We will continue to trust and lean on him completely as we pack and finish our last week here.

June has been filled with celebrations with friends and families and we are so enjoying spending time with everyone one last time before we go. Which reminds me, we are celebrating with friends tonight, so I should run..... Until next time. :)
