As of yesterday
Chelsea is fully funded for her mission trip.
That means God has provided
all the way along.
|The photos in this post are of Chelsea and some of her|
many friends from work.
She is going to miss them....a LOT.
We are so pleased with all of the work
Chelsea herself has done to save
the money she earned.
I cannot tell you how many times I've
urged her to purchase a top or skirt
she loves only
for her to walk away with a higher
purpose in mind.
she could not have saved
the $10,000 needed on her own.
This is a big week for our girl as it is her
last week of work and then on Saturday
she will have her 18th birthday.
We'll celebrate the 4th of July with
my brother Allan and my Sister in law, Bev.
We are all looking forward to seeing them!
Pretty soon we will go to the bank and
place our order for some Australian Dollars.
How cool it that?
We'll place our order and
it will come in about a week.
We are happy (for us) that the American
Dollar has gained strength on the Australian Dollar
in the past few weeks.
|Cuties. Chelsea, Kim and Emily|
We are also very blessed that our Moms are
going to take Chelsea out to her flight from
They will tour a bit in Seattle before taking Chelsea
to a late night flight from L.A.
Then Chels will fly 14 hours straight and totally miss
a day to arrive in Australia on an early morning.
|Chelsea and Sarah....|
We expect that there will be others in her program
on that flight.
Hopefully they will get to meet and start the process
of becoming acquainted.
This is all big and scary for the mama.
But God has provided in so many ways we
couldn't have imagined that it makes it easier...not easy...
to trust that Chelsea will be o.k.
I'm so thankful for the technology that will keep us in touch.
This old fashioned girl with a track phone
might have to get a smart phone
to be available for Face Time.
I don't know if I'll be around the blog a lot
or a little this week.
YOU have a super 4th of July.
P.S. Here is a post Chelsea wrote in the wee hours this morning.
