It’s been a little while since I have posted, so it's about time to share with you all. I am continuing to prepare for my departure in January, this has involved becoming homeless – not really I have moved in with a friend. The early weeks of June were busy sorting through my stuff – what do I need here in Canada now until I go, what do I hope to bring with me to Kenya but don’t need now – my textbooks and good paring knife made this pile, the third pile was things I don’t need but neither could I part with, my parents have been kind enough to store these items for me. The last pile, and a large pile it was, consisted of stuff I no longer need. It has been rather freeing to destuff my life and it will make things easier before my departure as I won’t have to do it then.

Preparation has also involved starting to raise support. I have sent out letters and have shared at my parent’s church. I pray that support raising will continue to go well, and that I will I have my total anticipated budget of $30 000, raised or committed to before I leave. If you would like to receive my newsletter (3-4/year) please e-mail me your address (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thanks for those of you who have already supported me, if you haven’t yet but are interested just click the link on the side of the page.
I also have had some fun lately I’ve had 2 weddings to attend, neither of them here at home, this has given me a good excuse to get away and enjoy some of the beauty of God’s Creation. Here’s some pictures for you.

This coming summer I am sure will go by quickly and before I know it I will be starting some missionary training courses in Ontario and Colorado. I will keep you posted.
