We said, “I guess we’re moving to Kenya…” a year and a half ago, but in 24 hours we’ll be boarding a plane and in 48 hours we’ll be living in Kenya…
So many emotions right at the surface. Too many details swirling in our heads. Tough goodbyes to family, friends, and favorite foods. 🙂 Looking forward to doing nothing for 16 hours on planes.
Our job is to “Land well”, meaning it’s extremely important for us to focus ourselves on figuring out what life looks like for our family in Nairobi. Meaning we won’t be getting straight to “work”. We’re in it for the long haul. So let us adjust and figure things out and we’ll post updates when we can. Flexibility is the key! (Please sign up for our email newsletter on GerbersGo.com).
The tentative plans are Thursday and Friday to search for a house to rent and Patrick learns how to drive in Nairobi, move in over the weekend, Hannah starts orientation on Monday and Middle School on Tuesday. That seems like enough for the first week!
We wanted to end on a high note… and that’s that we recently were told that WE ARE FULLY FUNDED!! Thank you #TeamGerbersGo for praying for this day and for you supporters who literally made it happen! It’s the end of one chapter, but just the beginning of our next chapter… set in Nairobi, Kenya!
