Go ahead and google Basque Country! We had to when we got the first e-mail. But be careful, what began as curiosity for us has unraveled into a wild adventure. Isn't it amazing that over a year ago we had never even heard of the country we are moving our life of three boys to? Even if you are better versed in geography than we were take a peek. It is one of the most amazing, dynamic, and culturally mysterious places on Earth. Our heart strings have already begun to be tied. We are currently at 20% raised in support. That is based on a three year committment and with the knowledge that 90% must be raised to be able to leave in June. When I fisrt started fundraising Jeff Hall from International Younglife kept saying, "It is all about God doing a work in people, it is all about relationship and not about money." Funny to hear that when looking at the European sized budget. But he has been proven right every time we meet with someone to share the vision. We will not go alone. We will not go with one big check written because some one can. But with many people joining with us to share who God is and His deep love with the Basque people. Thank you for reading and praying and asking questions along with us! Here is a picture of the city we would be moving to: Donostia, Basque/Spain.
