Thanks so much in Swahili to everyone who came, planned, and blessed us at our going away party in Chicago this past Saturday. It was awesome to have so many people who have touched our lives in one place.

They even ordered Garcia’s (our favorite Mexican restaurant) and I think I ate enough guacamole for a small Africa nation, at least I acknowledge and embrace the fact that I am coping with the stress by over eating a bit šŸ™‚


The hosts were so thoughtful and planned tons of fun kid activities as there were many families that have really impacted us there. There was a time of sharing and prayers and of course I was in tears. After the party we were saying we are grateful for this opportunity to share how much people in our lives mean to us, without a major event like leaving we often let important things go unsaid. So asante sana to everyone in Chicago (and elsewhere). We will be far away but we will take part of you all with us as we travel.
