The boy is leaving on a missions trip to Panama.
This picture was sneakily snapped late last night as the boy was rushing about packing for his second missions trip to Panama.
We had a conversation that sounded something like this…
CC: Did you get shampoo
Boy: *dramatic sigh* Yes mom
Boy: Forgot that
Boy: (running upstairs to get one) Guess that might come in handy.
CC: What would you do without me?
Boy: *major eye rollage*
We set our alarm so that we could get up 2:30 this morning to kiss him good by, where we had a conversation that sounded something like…
CC: Love you son.
Boy: Love you to mom.
Superman:Did you pack your toothbrush?
Boy:I have a travel one.
CC:Don’t drink the water, and don’t brush your teeth in the water.
CC:*major eye rollage* (or would have if my eyes had been opened)
I stumbled back to bed, and didn’t move till 6:30.
They left the church around 3:15 so they could get to Pittsburg and leave at 7am.
They are in the air now, flying to Panama City, Panama. So, if you see a huge Delta flying overhead, give it a wave. My boy might be on it.
When they get there around quarter till 1, they will sit and wait till 4pm to hop on a little puddle jumper and fly to Davíd (Da veed).
Where they will then climb onto a bus and make a 1-2 hour drive up the mountain to arrive at Bouquete (Bo ket a) around 7pm.
They will spend a week, ministering to the local people. Roofing, pouring concrete, electrical work, and sharing God’s love.
On the 25th, they will reverse the trip and come home.
If I seem a bit distracted, it is because my thoughts are in Panama.
