Vol. I, No. VI
Our plane tickets are purchased and we are pressing on towards getting ready to go. Well, mostly we're pressing on towards tomorrow's yard sale. When that is complete, we'll focus more steadily on cleaning house, packing and last minute shopping. We fly out of Phoenix on September 25th!
You've been SO generous with suitcases! We *think* we are covered. It's hard to know for sure as we can barely walk around in our room as it's beginning to look like the baggage claim area mixed with yard sale goodies, but we think we have enough….THANK YOU!
Thank you for praying for Meredith's fatigue and stress levels….God is faithfully answering, so please, keep on praying!
On the other end of all these things is Poland! We're getting excited to meet the people there. They are a bit nervous to meet us and worried about the couple that is there leaving for such a length of time, so let's continue to pray for them.
We just heard this morning that there are no bunk beds to borrow, so we're looking at needing to purchase them or packing the kids into the room on the floor. (Not sure the older kids would appreciate that as we are quite the westerners and used to mattresses and elevation! :) This will equate to about $750 for the frames and mattresses and bedding. This wasn't something we were expecting (surprise!!!) and we would love to know if there's someone who would like to share this expense with us.
Our partnership is currently at just under 75% given and/or pledged to be given. It's an amazing blessing that over 40 individuals/families have partnered with us financially and more with prayer thus far! God is good and we're almost there….both to 100% (or beyond as God Himself knows what our needs will be) AND to Poland!
We are beyond blessed by your gracious giving and encouragement….
Please stop by our yard sale tomorrow if you have a chance. We can still take donations as well and please pray for clear weather for tomorrow…it's been raining buckets here on a daily basis….We're starting to wonder if this is England as there is moss growing on the fence outside our bedroom window. We love the rain, but we're praying for clear skies for the sale!
As always, we are only serving by HIS grace,
Tucker & Meredith
