Katie's Send-off

Katie leaves for a mission trip to South Africa bright and early tomorrow morning and will be gone until November 29th. Her church had a send-off meeting tonight, so Mom, Dad, Jacob, Emmaline, and I headed down to Cincinnati to spend the afternoon with her and attend the meeting. It was supposed to be a family day, but Nathan started running a fever last night and Ellie came down with some sort of stomach virus. Anyway, Katie's group has a blog that they will be updating daily. Click HERE if you'd like to follow their progress. Please pray for her safety and ministry while she is there. I know she would appreciate it, as this trip really takes her out of her comfort zone. I can't wait to hear stories and see pictures when she returns.

Katie's church is HUGE and they had a great indoor play area for the kids.
