We received a call from Church Mission Headquarters this morning asking if we could possibly begin our service sooner than anticipate. You could have knocked us over with a feather. We have been a little addled most of the day. Instead of going to the MTC on January 19, 2015, we go September 1, 2014. That's only about six weeks from now! I tell you the blood was pumping fast and furious this morning. We have calmed down a lot since then. But there is so much to do still. Our "Farewell" will be August 24 at 1:00 PM. If you're in the neighborhood, you're invited and welcomed to attend.
Adding to today's excitement was our first session with our study coach. He'll be teaching us how to learn a foreign language. Wednesday we meet with our Malay tutor. Next Monday we meet with our coach again and a Malay speaking volunteer. This will only last about six weeks before we enter the MTC instead of the six months we had planned.
It all comes together in the Lord's time. We have faith that all will work out the way it should.
