"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen."
1 Peter 4:10-11 (NIV)

John in the news :)

John was interviewed by our local newspaper, The Weekly News of Cooke County, about our upcoming trip. (*Note I had to do some copy and paste/re-arranging work to get the article to fit here on the blog while still large enough to read.) 

Also news...John emailed me to report our crate with supplies has made it to South Africa, which is great news! However, they charged us another $940 which is not so good. John and Chris had already paid around $6,000 to ship the crate from Houston, so the grand total to get supplies there is pretty expensive. 

Since the crate was shipped in November, I have gotten several more donations of used parts which we want to take with us, especially the knees. Each of us get 2 bags to check for flights without extra charge. Extra baggage allowances are $163 ahead of time and $200 if we purchase when we get to the airport...obviously we'll be figuring out how many to purchase ahead of time.

Our trip is getting closer! 80 days left. 

God, I pray that in the coming weeks as we make final preparations that we remember You take care of us and will be with us every step of the way. We pray that the crate makes it safely to New Day from South Africa and that funds will be available for final expenses for this trip. Amen.
