I think the kids and I are most accurately found in number 2. We keep hearing from Troy about all of the neat things and cool people he is meeting and about the peace he feels being there. We want to see God work. We want to know Him better. We are beyond anxious to experience the good, the bad and everything in between. I think Britt said it a while back ... enough anticipation already, we're ready to go!
