We took another step closer to getting to Tlaxiaco this week as we sent in the deposit necessary to completely reserve our spot. I guess it should have felt a lot more momentous or exciting, but in reality it was pretty straight forward. No butterflies or emotions as I dropped it in the mailbox. But it’s on it’s way which is nice.
Budget wise, we’ve already bought the plane tickets down to Oaxaca for Michelle and the kids (about $1400) and now paid our deposit ($900) which is also part of our year’s fees.
Just wanted to put a brief note about what we’re currently working on to get ready for the trip. First, we got our house listed and we’re praying that it sells quickly and for a good price. Next, I’m working on finding a “road trip buddy” for my drive from Airdrie to Tlaxiaco. Think Dumb and Dumber and you can imagine how much fun it’ll be! Anyone interested?
My Spanish training is going slowly, but only because I haven’t put a lot of effort in recently. Getting a house ready to sell and launching a website takes time! I can say this though “Me espousa es muey bonita” 🙂 I may have spelled that wrong.
We’re working on getting going with our fundraising. We are hoping to partner with many people to make this experience a strong one; both for my family as well as for those that help out. And to be clear, we are raising support in both prayer and finances. We need both, and any bit would be appreciated. More to come on that, but please start praying and asking the Lord if He wants you to be involved.
