Mark took off to Kenya on Wednesday. He will be gone for 3 week. This is his 4th year going with teens from Valor. You would think the goodbyes would get easier. They were not.
It probably didn't help that we dropped him off at 9pm. The kids were tired and they were SOOO weepy. They love their daddy so much. Elijah woke up this morning and the first thing he said was, "Mom, I sorta am missing daddy right now."
I am so glad Mark gets this opportunity every year even though it is hard.
Please remember him and the team in prayer over the coming weeks.
He did make it safely to Nairobi in the middle of our night last night and they will be spending some time in the city before heading out to the country.
