Life Updates: House, Car, and Laura’s new job!

September 29, 2011 § 5 Comments

It’s a very exciting time around here as we move from our current home living with friends (and many, many gracious thanks to the Showell family!!) and venture on to a place of our own. We are very excited about getting settled in and will share pictures when we have them. In other news, we found a car! We are working out the details but hope to get the keys sometime next week. More details to come.

In other news, I am volunteering for a medical mission organization. Our first outreach is Monday October 3 through Thursday October 13. We would appreciate your prayers as I go on this journey. We will traveling by plane 2 hours from Lusaka to a small outreach hospital and doing surgeries on women who have become incontinent after prolonged labor and who didn’t have access to an emergency c-section. These women become ostracized from society (modern-day lepers) who remain in their own urine and feces day after day. The VVF surgery (more info HERE) has a high success rate of repairing the damage these women have experienced and allowing them to integrate back into society. It’s a fantastic organization and more info about it is available HERE.

After the move, we won’t have internet for a while at our home so you may only receive sporadic updates from us. Stay tuned!
