"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)

It's 2015...

It's 2015...the year of our next trip to Zambia. The date...well January to May won't take long I'm sure. We haven't set exact dates yet for our trip, but we're looking to leave mid-May. Plane tickets will be purchased soon. 

John made the really long drive to Kansas on December 20th to take all of our supplies to the shipping container. He had to rent a van to fit all the boxes and totes. 

Here's a picture John took of all the supplies unloaded. The shipping container will leave in the next few months, making its way to Africa.

In other news, we now have enough funds to start construction on a clinic at New Day. John and Chris have been talking with New Day about logistics of building a clinic that we can use to see patients and make prostheses while we're there, and that they can use also. Construction of that clinic should start later this year. For our May trip, we will be setting up our work area in the now finished garage at New Day. 

Since I've gotten all settled into 2015 and looking ahead to "what does 2015 hold?", I definitely feel the excitement starting to build for our trip in May.
