"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)

The supplies made it there!

Earlier this week, John sent me a text that our supplies shipped on the crate have made it to New Day Orphanage! The supplies made it...without the crate. Apparently they were having trouble transporting the crate, so they unpacked everything and delivered it that way. The crate will follow later but at least the supplies are there waiting for us. Hopefully all of the supplies made it. 

With just 24 days left, Jason and I are starting to make a to-pack list. Anything we need to take and aren't using now is getting stacked on the guest bed to make sure we don't forget anything. Even when I'm staying somewhere else for one night, I'm always afraid I'm forgetting something. So, two and half weeks away from home...I'm going to be double and triple checking I get everything. 

Tonight is our last dose of the typhoid vaccine medication and we are so glad! We opted to do the oral vaccine versus injection because A) it was cheaper and B) it lasts 5 years instead of only 2 with the injection. It's really specific on how to take the medication. It consists of four pills that you take every other day, with a full glass of water, an hour before a meal, and must be completed at least one week before leaving. Jason has been having nausea the mornings after taking the pill, so he's super glad today is the last day. Next, we have to start taking the malaria medication two days before we leave, during our time gone, and for a few weeks when we get back.
