It will be nice to have a few days off, however. I hope to do some major cleaning and organizing at home and maybe even some sewing. I might bake too if the weather stays cool.
In other news, we have been invited to go on a missions trip to Fiji at the end of July. Kirk will be teaching and playing music and I will probably be working with children. What we are most excited about, however, is that we will both be helping build a water filter for the village. They have had some outbreaks of typhoid and other diseases because they don't have clean drinking water, so we are going to try to remedy that. We love going on trips when we can help meet people's physical needs as well as spiritual ones. As I think about it, that is something important we have both learned from our parents, all of whom are examples of people who are great at helping others in very practical ways.
All this means that we have a lot of money to raise, so another thing I need to do next week is work on some creative ways to make some money for the trip. Please pray for us as we prepare and be expecting more updates coming soon.
