Preparing and Packing

November 18, 2010

Keith arrived on August 18 from Africa with our paperwork completed. We are now legal residents of Botswana, Africa. Praise the Lord! Since his arrival, we have been working on getting a container for all our belongings. We are taking our 4x4 truck and a trailer with all our goods, so we will need a special container that is more difficult to obtain. While we are waiting on the container, we are busy packing up the rest of our goods and plan to start visiting supporters, friends, and family. Our hope, Lord willing, is to be in Kasane by Thanksgiving 2010.

Keith’s three month sojourn in Africa was extremely productive. Besides working tirelessly with several government offices to procure our paperwork, he began a prison ministry in Kasane, spoke at a memorial service for some slain policemen and a couple of funeral services, preached at a local fellowship, counseled and encouraged many. In his spare time, he repaired and painted our new home that some wonderful Christian people have allowed us to rent at present with hopes of buying it in the future. Best of all, he was able to be with our daughter, Elise, and encourage and help her in her ministry with the children. Now as we look to the future, we are eager to be there in Africa with her.

While Keith was in Africa, I was busy sorting, and packing our goods. I was also able to visit family and attend a nephew’s wedding in Alabama.

We received you wonderful and newsy letter several weeks ago....and quite surprised to learn that you have been in Texas all year. Now....I just found your letter on the internet and note that you might be in Botswana by Thanksgiving (yesterday). Yet, today being Nov. 26....is Elise on her way to the USA for Christmas? Whew...what a year this has been for you folks. God Bless you all.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

With Love, Sandy .....Bill and Eric, too!
