Preparing for the Big Trip

Our team is modest in size and I'm not just talking about Jake and Luke our 9- and 7-year-olds (Jake is pictured here at the right with his younger brothers in front of him.  They'll have to wait for the next trip!)

I'll post a full team picture as soon as I have one, but this shows the Smith family (Nate and Jen with their boys) at one of our prep meetings.  Also going are 2 women: Vielka and Candy, and 3 guys: Paul, Gary and Monte.

Jen organized her entire mothers' group (Mothers Together at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church) to purchase backpacks for the orphans and fill them with school supplies.  Here they are finishing preparing the backpacks and praying for the children.   They were a wonderful gift for all our students!

Let the adventure begin!!
