For those of you who don't know, Lo is my nickname, and this letter should explain how I currently find myself at the very ends of myself. I'm so excited to get to be a part of the work that God is doing in Africa and to see the ways he is growing and molding me. This blog is a way to keep all of my friends, family, and supporters updated on my fundraising progress as well as a place to update news, prayer requests, and praises during my time in Africa. If you have already received my letter and are praying with me and supporting me financially: THANK YOU! Please note that the home office notified me yesterday that my departure date has been moved from Feb. 7 to February 28, 2011.
