Packed to the Gills

How's the packing going? Wait, I thought ya'll weren't leaving until the end of October?

I'm assuming some of ya'll are reading this blog day after day and wondering why we are packing now when we aren't leaving for another few weeks. Good question. Well, we are going to be hitting the road here in another day or so. We won't be back to High Point until after the classes at Equip. That means that we best get to packing. This is our first time packing for the long term (semi-long term) in another country. That means lots to think about and much to pack.

So here are a few of the things that we are taking to Liberia (This is not a complete list):

Linen pants/shirts
Doula supplies
Kyle's crazy water findin' tools
Wide-brimmed packable hat (with UPF protection in it)
Pictures of friends and family
Camping stove
Malaria meds- yahoo.

Those are but a few items we will be cramming into 4 maxed out suitcases and our carry-ons. Anything else we should think about bringing along? It better be small, cuz we're runnin' out of room!

Keep praying for all the details-including the packing.

  1. I love the part in the Poisonwood Bible where they wear layers and layers of clothes on the airplane and carry things in their pockets like cake mixes and frying pans. I know you can't get away with that in today's world of TSA, but you could WEAR your heaviest or layers of clothes and save room in the suitcases for the lightest ones.
