Tomorrow, we leave POC to spend a few days traveling until we leave for Honiara on Friday. Not sure what kind of e-mail connection we will have, so it will probably be about a week before I can update the blog again. We are so excited that God is bringing this leg of our journey to a close and leading us to make our new home in the Solomon Islands. Please continue to pray for us as we are in transit this week:
*For rest and laughter (Prov. 17:22) as we spend two days in Madang (just our family!)
*For favor with the airlines (Prov. 21:1) as we travel with six big boxes all perilously close to the weight limit
*For sweet words to be on our lips (Prov. 16:24) - especially on Thursday and Friday as we navigate airports with lots of bags and lots of kids
We are really enjoying the Advent season. The kids are old enough now that they can participate in the scripture reading during our devotionals, and they remember the words to the songs. Last night, we began lighting the Promise Candle on our Advent wreath, and we set up our Lego nativity scene. Sarah cut snowflakes out of white paper and adorned her window here at POC. I have a feeling that these snowflakes will be tucked in her backpack to travel to Honiara!
