Roller Coaster Ride


No, I didn't go to Great America or Six Flags. But it has been a week of ups and downs just the same. Being someone who gets mad amounts of butterflies at the top of a roller coaster, this photo reminded me of how I felt going into our interview. We are still in Littleton Colorado with World Venture. We arrived last Saturday. One long week ago. We had our extensive interview and psychological evaluation, and after some deliberating, World Venture accepted us as long term missionaries to Mali. We are excited for sure! The reality is still revealing itself. Since then we have been in training sessions every day. Training in public speaking, training on who the mission is and how we fit into the picture. The best part of being here is getting to know the other six couples and families that are in this process with us. Today is our first day off. We are going to the Denver Zoo and we will meet Wes and Chino and their new little baby. I am hoping for an emotionally refreshing day.

I am super excited for you all!
Have fun at the Denver Zoo. We've been there before. It's a lot bigger than Happy Hollow!
