Are We Done Yet??

Wow!  Another few days of organizing, packing, reading, studying, and all in all trying to stay focused on the Adventure ahead.  We are looking forward to the focus, the challenge, and the blessing of being able to have the health and the mind to be able to help in the Lord's work.  We think that we are finished (?) appointments barring anything else like this week - an unforseen event - a broken tooth or two - still here though so easily fixed.  We got a letter yesterday from Salt Lake dated July 1 - it seems to not have been mailed or lost in the mail for several weeks.  By the time we leave, we hope to be very ready to concentrate on the experiences that we will have.  Looking forward to it.

July 25, 2011 - Monday

Preparation (and worry) continues.  This is practice adding to our blog.  The weather is sunny and warm today in Calgary.  We had talks on Pioneers, new and old in Church.  We need to continually study our materials and review the materials and supplies that are to be ready to go.

Paper Work

We have had to do a lot of paper work to get ready, including new passports and Police Criminal Record checks.  We are getting short of time to get all the necessary documents back to Salt Lake in time for the application to apply for visas to enter Zambia to be processed by September.

Welcome to our mission blog!

Greetings from Canada. Packing is underway for our mission to Zambia. We enter the MTC September 5, 2011 for a two-week training course to be followed by 23 months in Africa (but who's counting? :)

We will be living in Lusaka, the capital city of Zambia.
