I’m so, so, so excited to say that Emi and I are indeed flying home to Georgia tomorrow to spend almost a month! It’s my mom’s 60th so my dad and Steve Kasha at SERV made it possible for us to come and celebrate with her. Thank you!!
I wanted to let you know where and when we will be around, so that hopefully we can connect on one of these days. I have been struggling with bronchitis for a few months now, so this is also a bit of a rest trip for me. As much as I would LOVE to see everyone individually, it just won’t be possible so please see if you can work one of these dates into your schedule:

***If you have to choose only one evening - choose Sept. 6th. Please SAVE THAT DATE. This is your chance to hear first-hand all the great stuff God has been doing here in South Africa this past year. It will be very casual, some nice coffee and dessert, and a short and sweet feedback evening. PLEASE COME! And feel free to bring a friend to give them a glimpse of world missions, and how you are really making a difference for eternity!
Let me know if you think you will be able to attend (either by replying to this email or calling me on my mom's cell 770-608-8070). If by chance you can't RSVP then please feel free to come anyway. Everybody is welcome. I can't wait to see you!!!!
To all of our other faithful supporters and friends in Montana and elsewhere – I’m so sorry I won’t be able to see you too – I wish I had unlimited miles and I would see every single precious one of you!

p.s. I am OVERWHELMED with how many of you have said that you want to contribute to my Emi’s Closet project. THANK YOU! Please keep posted for the next blog and I will let you know where and when you can bring stuff by or mail it….And I have some cute magnets and little hearts we’ve made to sell and raise money too. Stay tuned for more info!
