We are now only $500 short of being halfway funded for our trip! We have been given about $3000 & are almost halfway to our goal of $7000!
We feel that it is an honor that we are able to take this trip & are so excited to see what God has to show us in Africa. We leave in exactly 5 weeks! Between now & then we have some important things to do like:
- finish raising the other $4000 (want to help us do that? We would love to talk to you about this. Just send us an email at: bethmariewest[at]gmail[dot]com)
- get our Yellow Fever shots
- find Ben some new shorts (b/c he is down to just one functional pair!)
- continue to meet almost weekly with our team to learn about cultural things we need to be aware of & know what to pack, etc.
- keep breaking in my new hats (gotta keep that sun off my skin!)
