Tonight I was sorting through papers and found something I wrote about 5 weeks ago. I was trying to wrap my mind around what needed to be done and motivate myself to get moving on packing. Here's what I wrote... (Laura)

Every item in our house -
every little piece
every little scrap
all of it
needs to either

- be packed for storage
- be packed for POC (training)
- be packed for Ukarumpa (the mission center)
- be sold
- be given away
- left for a while to use and then one of the above

we have seven weeks left here

what will we need or want?

Lord please give us wisdom.

Work party

Paul was away at Camp Berachah as a counselor for a week and Laura went to visit her mom in Tennessee. While we were gone a group from our church came and did an incredible job getting our house ready to rent.

It helped that the doctor made balloon animals and gave them suckers
