Traveling to the USA Again!

Tonight, I (Laura) will be traveling to the USA again!  Again?  Yes, again!
This time, Felipe will be traveling with me, while our girls will stay at home in Brazil being cared for by their beloved Aunt Renata (Felipe's sister).

As I mentioned in a recent post, Felipe and I have applied to serve in a missions organization called ACTION International, www.actioninternational.org . 

The final stage of the application process requires us to participate in an orientation week, where missionary candidates are evaluated and interviewed by a missions board.  We also will have various meetings as we prepare to become official ACTION missionaries. We will be staying in the Seattle, Washington area where the ACTION International US Headquarters are located, and then return straight back home to Brazil.  


Please pray for us as we complete our application process and undergo various interviews and evaluations during our orientation week. 

We are hopeful, expectant, and can see God's hand guiding us in this new step in ministry.  We are excited to learn more about this missions organization, and look forward to going on this business/ministry trip kid-free. This is a wonderful treat for us as a couple, since we were just apart for a total of 6 weeks while I was visiting my family in the US. It will be nice to have a week of just us two.  This will be our first big trip alone without kids since Sophia was born, and she is almost six!

Please also pray for traveling mercies for me, as I have been experiencing some pain due to my uterine fibroid condition.  I wrote about this in my last post.  The baby is doing great, and thankfully I am feeling MUCH better than I was earlier this week, so I am good to travel. After four days of bed-rest, the pain I was experiencing has significantly subsided. I am extremely thankful, and plan to pace myself and take it easy as much as possible during our trip.

Soon we will be in touch with news about our special trip to Seattle, Washington!
