Packed and Ready....

We're headed to Ukraine tomorrow morning!! The past few days have been long and crazy, but I think we're finally ready. We spent Thursday night packing all the suit cases with supplies and donations...and as you can tell from the pictures it was very chaotic!

Each suit case can only be 50 lbs, so we did a lot of packing, weighing, re-packing, and weighing again. By the end, we managed to pack 3 wheel chairs, 1 stander, a lot of wedges, treatment materials, orthotics, shoes, toys, etc. into 17 large suit cases. Now we just need everyone to pray that the airlines let us slide if the bags are 1-2 lbs overweight!

Please keep our group in your prayers over the next week, specifically that our travels go smoothly and safely, that our information is well received, that our training and suggestions are carried over after we leave, and last but not least that we show God's love to everyone we meet as we work with these children.

We have a very busy schedule, but we'll try to blog while we're in Ukraine. Thanks to 99balloons, we officially have our own website now!
So...if you're intrested in following our work in Ukraine, check out our new blog!
