We have left the UK now, in case you wonder why you haven't had a text or phonecall recently or why we haven't been in touch about going out for a starbucks
Here is a video of Amelie at the airport at Terminal 5, Heathrow waving goodbye to you all. Little does she know that after a night's sleep, she will wake up in a completely different culture, a new place and new people to get to know. Hopefully, she will thrive in it all. Taking our small toddler to a developing country where things are a lot more 'rough and ready' explains to a great degree my reluctance in going away. There are many more challenges to everyday life than iin the UK and I will be teaching Amelie not to go into the long grass where the snakes could be... We will be covering her in mossie spray in the evenings... We will be filtering clean water for her (and us)... We will be lathering her in sunscreen before she goes out in the tropical sun.
We appreciate your support and prayers as we go. Knowing we have friends and family who are behind us and supportive is really a huge encouragement! ... and helps us realise we aren't actually mad...
