Can anyone say Amen? Like real LOUD???

Ok, So it has been a few days, and several thousand emotions crashing into each other. None more prevalent than any others, but just a myriad of them all. I have also had a difficult time talking in a straight line. But this post is a direct amazing thank you to the God who always turns out bigger than my imagination. We have received all funds to complete our trip. In less than a week.
I got this in my email box today and it is so perfect to say thanks with...
Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of others...for the countless unknown souls with whose fate we are connected by a bond of sympathy. Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built upon the labors of people, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.” -Albert Einstein
Wow, who knew Albert Einstein was so smart??

We leave Monday afternoon and arrive in Kiev on Tuesday. Our SDA appointment for referrals is on Thursday. That sums up what I actually do know about our trip. The rest of the details is in the adventure to come. Pray fervently that God moves mountains and hearts for His will to be done. I already know it will be, but it doesn't hurt to have a cheering squad. And I am sure we would love to continue the hedge of protection that is surrounding us as we face this life changing opportunity.
Thank you thank you thank you to every person who has made this possible for us even to consider going. Starting with our beautiful daughter Caylyn and right up to you, who are reading this and making this journey with us.
