And now, the time has come!
Rather than facing the final curtain or anything else that song suggests, we are off! Mombasa here we come!
Some of you will be familiar with the journey we've been on these last few months, but to catch everyone else up, here's a quick summary of our journey so far.
At the end of November we decided to join the team going from Freedom Church to launch a new campus in Mombasa, Kenya. We applied, went through interviews and joined the awesome team saying goodbye to friends, families and careers to start a new life in Africa.
Originally planning to leave in July, we faced a hiccup in the visa application process, and ended up saying several rounds of goodbyes as we then delayed our flights until- you guessed it- today!!
So now, with less than 2 hours before we fly, our life packed in 4 cases and some hand luggage we are off and wanted to take this last opportunity on British wifi to say a huge thank you to everyone who has stood with us, supported us, asked for updates and prayed for us, committed to giving to us monthly as we start this new adventure, and encouraged us with their love all the way.
We can't thank you all enough. We're so very excited for this new journey, and know that much of what we are doing would not be possible without your support!
Thank you friends! Can't wait to share this adventure with you!
Phil and Beth
