Counting Down

ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three TWO….ONE!

I love countdowns.  When I was a kid, I always made countdown paper chains at Christmas, and I always got goosebumps at the countdown to New Years.  The thrill and anticipation that comes with countdowns has always excited me.

I love beginning new adventures, and this adventure is no different.  For, dear friends, in just two weeks and two days, my husband and I will begin a very new adventure.  We’re going to be heading to Para, Brazil for 4 months.  I’ll be completing my student teaching at an international school, and David will be spending a lot of time reading and practicing his Greek.

It’s been quite an adventure to get to this point, and I’m so excited about what is in store for us there.  We’d like to invite you to come along with us on this journey.  We won’t make any promises about how often we’ll update, since we aren’t sure of the internet situation there, but we’ll do our best to keep you in the loop with our lives there.

We value your prayers as we near the end of the countdown– we still have quite a bit to do, including picking up our visas.  Please be praying that these things will come together smoothly.

  1. Is this the website of the school where you will be teaching? If so it will help people picture your setting before you get a chance to post pictures yourself. http://www.avabrazil.org/site/

    In a metro area of many million people, if you ever meet “Bill from Brazil” who lived in Earlham, IA for the 2008-2009 school year, say, “Hi!” from Mrs. Connon. He’s a very outgoing guy…from Belem. Earlham’s climate was QUITE a change for him in more ways than one.

  2. Hi Lindsey and David……..it was SO good to be with you just before you left. We had a great time at the supper table, don’t you agree? As promised, a special prayer goes up each morning for an enriching time on your journey in ministry in Brazil. Hugs…….
