If you think about it...

Pray for us next week. Hank and I are heading out of Auburn this Friday at 2 a.m. to catch a flight to East Asia for ten days. Our purpose is to take parents to see their children on STINT (year internship over there with Crusade), to take students to go and experience the ministry, and for Hank to see our partnership so that he can help recruit Auburn students to go for the summer and for the year. I'm excited for him to see and experience a place that is near and dear to my heart:) On a fun note, we have the largest group of Auburn students that we've ever had committed to serve next year on STINT!

Preparing for EA is not an easy task. We have two climates that we'll be encountering, a big bag of goodies to pack (SURPRISE! STINTERS, the neon green bag is yours) as well as breakfast food/snacks. Therefore, the baby's room looks like this...

Cliff, Balance, and Zone bars are our breakfast of choice as well as applesauce and dried fruit.

Also, for some reason, pop tarts taste SO good over there. Weird, i know, but don't judge until you've tried them in the midst of experiencing Asia land.

For those of you who are doing the math in your head, I'm 27 weeks and the doctor says I'm good to go! I'm thankful that I'm feeling well and besides needing to walk around the plane more often, staying hydrated, and being _ _ pounds heavier... it will be just be a "normal" trip to East Asia:)
