Departure Date: August 1 ... Itinerary Updated

Some of you have been asking when I am to depart for my year of missions. The answer is August 1, which is in just over a week. Before then I have to clear out all my stuff at 162 Glebeholme in Toronto - where I've been living for the past three years with my dear landlord George (who turned 95 yesterday).

My first stop is Tyrone, Georgia (just outside of Atlanta) where I'll be meeting with many OM (Operation Mobilization) people at the USA office. Hoping to see George Verwer's former gopher Michael Kaspar (see blog at right) while there. Then, on August 3, on to Martinez, Georgia (south of Augusta) to visit the Bookling warehouse and my wonderful coworkers.

I fly out of Atlanta Aug 4, and fly into Gatwick airport in London on Aug 5--two hours after George Verwer flies in from somewhere else. I believe Nathan Smith (see blog at right) flies in later that day - to get me started on the "Gopher Orientation Program" (which will take place over the space of a week or so). After this I may have another week or so to catch up on various things and settle in more, at which point I may go to the OM International Forum in Germany--a conference that only takes place once every three years.

In late August I am going to De Bron, Netherlands, for a week of Orientation. This is when the year starts for most people joining OM (so I am leaving very early). I have just updated my itinerary below (bottom of the page); I think it is fairly accurate.

Praise:
-That God has allowed me to get this far
-That my financial support is looking great
-That people are committing to pray for me
-That all of my papers, etc, are in order

Pray:
-That God will be preparing me now for what lies ahead
-For wisdom and a Christ-like attitude this year
-That I would take time to be still with God in the hectic days that lie ahead
-That God will work in me; that God would work through me
