Mommy Mission... Again!

Today we had the honor and privilege of seeing this team off at the airport. This was 60% of the very first Brighton Their World mission/vision team. Well - minus the two little cuties who hopped in the photo. This team met up in Chicago with the other 4 from North Carolina and now they are together as a whole team somewhere over the Atlantic - next stop Frankfurt, Germany!

I can't even begin to tell you how proud I am of Laura - and how blessed I am to share life with this girl. She has worked tirelessly for the last 6 months to get this trip all squared away. I'll tell ya this much - this house is missing her already but we just KNOW God is going to be glorified by this team she is leading. Can't wait to hear all about it.

We've dropped mommy at the airport before. For her last mission trip. For the trip to go take custoday of Mebbie. But something about this trip - probably her age - made this goodbye excrutiatingly tough for Meron.

Man... as a daddy - it was hard to watch.

She was trying SOO hard to keep it together and she did a really great job.

But she made me promise to start working on getting her passport - ASAP! Cuz she is determined to go to Africa and help feed the babies. And I think she is ready to come with us too...

Big huge thanks to everybody who has supported this trip in prayer - it's the most important part!

I am trying to get a list together over the next few days of our opt-in emails to get some update emails out for our supporters. If you haven't signed up to be on our mailing list - holler at us below and we'll get ya on the list!
