Back in Idaho

Hey Folks!

Yup that's right - I'm back in sunny Idaho for final training. Apparently some dates got mixed up with MAF, and so i sat at the airport for about 2 hours waiting for someone to pick me up. It was a good time to study for an exam ive got to write tomorrow. I'm converting my licenses to US FAA licenses, so every spare minute goes into cramming for that! (I strongly dislike tests!!) Ill let you know how things go....

Relief work in Haiti

Here is a short video of Hurricane Gustav when it struck Haiti.

Please continue to pray for the people & country of Haiti as they struggle through the aftermath of several severe hurricanes. As you can tell, there will be an abundance of work for me when i arrive!

What a mess!

When I close my eyes at night I can still see it; bins, cardboard boxes, packing paper, baby clothes, our cutlery set, camping stove, pillows, papers, books and much more. In actual fact, its everything we own packed in one room. Every day when Jayden is either napping or in bed for the night, I spend time trying to pack and organize, but when I come back the next day it seems like it's an even bigger mess! There's actually so much stuff packed haphazardly in that room I can hardly turn around! So far I have packed 14 large Rubbermaid containers and one box, so I'm getting pretty close to done, but to get through customs every single item I pack needs to be written down and then typed on to a spreadsheet. This takes time, but at least we will have a complete inventory list and down the road when we need to unpack or are looking for something, it's just a matter of looking on our list and then finding the box with the corresponding number. Anyway my goal is to be done packing this week. I can't wait!

We're back in the Wack!

After a long 9.5 hour drive through the night, we made it back to Chilliwack, BC. We left immediately after Jason was finished his flying for the day on Wednesday, and made it back to our new home on Thursday morning. It weird to think that we will be flying back to Nampa, ID in a few weeks for our final training! Praise the Lord for the safe travels and for not having any car problems.
