29 days until Manila . . .

Dear Friends,

Although we’ve been preparing for this journey for almost a year, we knew that our lives had truly become consumed by it when we were at Walgreens at 11:49 p.m. on a Thursday night getting passport photos for our visas.  With less than a month to go, initially strange things now seem almost routine: hepatitis shots, visa applications, packing most of our lives into storage bins, and letting go of more things than we bargained for almost every day.  But that was always the point of this year away, so we’re trying not to sweat it.

Thank you to all of you who have been so supportive of our somewhat crazy idea to spend this next year of our lives fighting sex trafficking in Manila.  We’ve been blessed by all of the kind words, prayers, encouragement, and financial support.  If you happen to think of us during this final countdown, we’d be grateful for your prayers and support as we 1) try to find renters for our lovely little Oakland home, and 2) do our best to fundraise the last $13,000 needed for us to be able to pull this thing off.

Thanks to everyone who attended the great even at Netivot Shalom, and we’ll hope to see you at one of the other great events featured on our site!

Nate & Laura
