To our beloved community, on the day of our departure to eSwatini as short term volunteers for Global Ministries, we want you to know that we can never thank you enough for your kindness, your love, your support and your trust in us. You have given us gifts beyond measure. Financial gifts that have lifted the burden of worry and anxiety that otherwise would have traveled with us. Physical gifts in the presents you have given us to pass on to the children there. Spiritual gifts in your prayers, now and in the weeks to come. Emotional gifts in the ways you not only care for us, but have truly and fully become family, kin. These indeed are gifts without measure. They are a mantle of protection that we will carry with us as a family as we go on this grand, but also slightly nerve wracking adventure. Thank you!
