December 2 - January 18 in a nutshell

We had quite a busy month, hence no new pictures since the second. Here's the run down. We finished up our classes at the MTC, packed up our apartment, celebrated Mom's 50th birthday when they came on the 19th to help us move, graduated, moved back to WI in between blizzards. Got ready for Christmas, celebrated Christmas, celebrated New Year's, celebrated my birthday, prepared and sent off our visa paperwork to Asia-Pacific and moved to the Maatta's house in Wauwatosa where we'll be house sitting until the end of March.

As of January 1st we are official members of the mission. Whoo hoo:) We are waiting to hear from about when we will get our visas. Our goal is to leave in April, but since it is an election year, they said there might be delays. The latest we would leave would be July. To all of you who have prayed for and supported us throught the last three and a half years THANK YOU!!! We are excited to see what God has planned for us in 2009:)
