"How lucky I am to
have something that
makes saying goodbye
-Winnie the Pooh
At Mission Training we learned about saying good goodbyes. And this last week here in Washington that has been what we were focusing on. Not just saying goodbye to family and friends, but also to places and things that we are going to miss. Ice cream, the beach, apples, etc. And no matter how many times we do it, it never gets any easier. Even though it's hard to say goodbye,
"The most painful goodbyes are the ones that are never said and never explained." - Unknown
This is a very last minute blog post. Tonight we leave for Burundi, hopefully to arrive Thursday afternoon. Please pray that all of our many, many bags containing important medical supplies and most of our family's belongings makes it there safely, and for good transition into the Burundian culture.
There are so many people that we didn't have time to say goodbye to. So, until next time. Thank you for your support!
