Crating Day!!

The picture above is the finished product.  We were able to get all our stuff into the crate except just one insignificant desk chair.  The movers were great and were disappointed that they couldn't get everything in for us.  There was another crate to the side that our sofa bed went in then they packed an incredible amount of boxes and stuff on top of it.
In the process of getting everything packed.  700 cubic feet was what we got and we managed to fill it all up.

So we are finished crating.  We are now in Ridgeland, MS (near Jackson) visiting friends.  Jeff will speak to the church tonight about Zambia and then head on out again tomorrow (Thursday).  From MS we are headed to Pigeon Forge, TN for a mini vacation then we will travel onto Rockville, Va for our 8 week Field Personnel Orientation at the International Learning Center.  Lots of change is going on right now.  We appreciate your prayers as we ALL try to adjust to our new life and what the future holds.
