We're on a mission

Things have been a little crazy around here - and don't look like they'll settle anytime soon.

We've accepted the call to full time missions in Nicaragua. Yeah, you read that right, we're moving to Nicaragua. Not today or tomorrow, but it's coming.

Our first step is attending a 10-week Missionary Training in Mexico in September. We've started the process of raising the needed funds to get all of us there. We know that God is bigger than our circumstance and His glory will be seen in the next few months.

I'm going to try to keep the content here knitting and kiddo related, although the occasional missions bit may come in. And I'm planning an amazing raffle to help raise some support - details coming as soon as I hear back from a few prize donaters.

In the meantime, if you want to follow our adventure, you can here:

I happened across your Ravelry posts about the show on Friday. I won't be able to go, but I did post the info on my blog, so hopefully that will get some more bodies in the door! Good luck, I was lucky enough to go to Mexico on a medical missions trip in high school, and I can't say enough good things about people willing to give up their comfortable lives to do what God wants.
