Houston, We Have Lift Off!!!

We have lift off! (or at least permission to attend the training in Colorado!). The Lord provided a new monthly supporter and one of our current supporters decided to "up" their monthly support amount. With this news we have reached 86% of our funding and this allows us to forge ahead with our training at Mission Training Institute in Monument, Colorado.

Training will begin on Monday, October 18 and end on November 19. We will be leaving on October 11th or 12th in order to drive out there and see a few sites on the way.

Training will consist of 2 weeks of "How to learn a foreign language" and 3 weeks of cross cultural preparation. Our children will be in age appropriate level classes and will be studying the same material (while also trying to keep up with a few of their "regular" school subjects).

We are excited to be this far in the journey and at times overwhelmed. You all may be receiving an "SOS" call in the next 4 weeks saying, "Help -we've fallen (while carrying furniture and boxes)and we need your help to get the couch off from us! :)

At this time we are anticipating the possibility of having to move out of our home prior to our Colorado departure as well. This is a new development, as we thought we would move out in late December prior to our move to Costa Rica. We can say the journey has been painful, exhilarating, tiring, joyful, slow (and yet somehow fast), and character building but never once has it been BORING!

Our journey is not yet over though. We still need to reach 100% of our goal by October 26 in order to attend language school in January. In plain terms this means we need $1500.00 more in monthly commitments. We are continuing to trust that He will provide and that you will pray about your involvement. We would love to have you all come down for a work visit in 2012/2013/2014.

With anticipation,

The Fogg Family
