June has rolled in and we are expecting highs in the triple digits around Pueblo this week! The only thing hotter than the temperature is our news! Cheesy I know, but I couldn't come up with a better intro in the moment. If you come up with a better one, feel free to leave a comment below. Anyway, back to the high temp news!
Our applications have been accepted at YWAM-Haiti! We will be officially staff around the beginning of December! This begins its own set of challenges for the Fisher Missions team (Jay, Kate, and Baby Fisher). We have only 6 months to plan a cross-continent move. Luckily, we have had some help from a few different people!
The great folks down in Haiti have given us some pointers in what we would need for such a move. We were even allowed to place some of our things into a shipping container that was stationed in Pennsylvania to be sent down to Haiti in the next couple weeks.
Our final bit of help came from my Uncle Nathan and his family. The container being in PA gave us some challenges to content with, namely we're in Colorado and it's in PA. But that is where my Uncle steps in, having recently made a move to PA. He was able to get all of our items onto the container before it was shipped off. It was a lot of work on his part and I'm sure he's sick of us telling him thank you, but we'll say it again and again. Thanks Uncle Nathan and family for all your hard work! (Here's hoping he reads this post!)
While we are on the topic of thanking people, I'd like to give a quick shout out to all the people that have played such an important part of our lives over the past year. If it was not for you, none of this would be possible. (I hope you don't mind if I don't list your names here, otherwise this post would be like Numbers with all the names I'd have to list! You know who you are and that we are extremely and totally and uberlly thankful for you)
If everything goes to plan, the contents of an entire household are on their way down the Eastern Coast towards Florida where they will take a boat ride over to Haiti and be waiting tidy for us when we arrive in December. Now the next challenge awaits the team. Baby Fisher is due to be born the first part of August! Whew! Who knew moving to another country, having a baby, and starting out in full-time missions could be so busy! Tune in next time and please don't forget to comment below about a better intro than the one I came up with!
