Missionary Mondays on a Thankful Thursday



Hello Dear Family and Friends! I can hardly believe in 11 days Dave and I will be on a flight to Asia. It’s surreal.

There is no way possible that we would have made it to where we are if it weren’t for the love of Christ and the love that so many of you have poured out for us. From praying for us, to helping us move, for commenting on my blog letting me know you support us, for the cards, words of encouragement and much much more. There is no way we can count the abundance of blessings God has poured out on us but we are humbled and grateful.

Today I have two things for you! The first is a giveaway. I’ve teamed up with some really great women who have supported and encouraged me on my journey. We are giving away a Chemex coffee maker with filters, half of a pound of fresh roasted coffee from The Spice Merchant (a local joint in my hometown) and two hand painted cards from Burma. I’m super excited for whoever wins this prize!

If you haven’t heard of a Chemex coffee maker you can go to their website to learn more about why this coffee maker is so great. Basically their brewing method takes out the bitter coffee tastes and makes a great cup of java. Plus, I always feel like I’m creating some amazing scientific lab experiment when I make coffee with my Chemex.

The second thing I have for you is some snail mail! I love receiving snail mail and I love sending it. If you e-mail me your name and address I will send you a card from either Thailand or Burma. Due to postal regulations it might take me a few weeks to send you some snail mail but I give you my word if you ask for some snail mail I’ll do my best to send you some!

Thanks again friends for all your love and support! Here are the lovely ladies that are teaming up with me today. I hope you will take a few minutes to check out their blogs and see what they are all about.

  18. Yay for knitting. I love knitting. What are you making? This is random but did you know you can take knitting needles on an airplane? I was surprised but happy to take mine. I'm glad you have a fun thing to do in the evenings.

  19. Only 11 more days?! Ahh are you super nervous and anctious or calm and just ready to get going?! I so wan't this chemex coffee maker! You're the first one who ever told me about these, and I honestly have yet to try coffee from one. Silly me I need to get on that! Thanks so much for having me be apart of such a wonderful giveaway as you are in the final days before yours and Daves journey!

  20. I got a kit from We Are Knitters to review (I am so pumped!) that's called "Soho's Snood." It's basically what I would call a cowl, though, and it's really soft and gray. It's been awhile since I knit instead of crocheted so it has been fun to re-learn. I'm really glad to hear you can take knitting needles on the plane--I wasn't sure so I didn't travel with this project, but now I know I can take one home for Christmas!

  21. I'm a mix of every emotion! It's weird. I've been praying God will help us to be ready. I know some coffee shops have a Chemex as a brewing option so you might check around. It would be fun if you won!


    Thanks for being a part of it.
