Laura and Julie- Pre Trip Excitement

Since we found out about our trip to Kenya we have been feeling overjoyed and blessed to have been given such a great oppurtunity. We have been sharing the exciting news with friends and family and in return gotten their support. Many of them are already asking how they can be involved in next year's Eat So They Can Fundraiser, which is great!

The past few months have been very cold and snowy in Michigan - it is hard to believe that we will be in the warm climate of Kenya soon! Our days have been filled staying warm indoors with friends and family, working, and waiting for spring to emerge. We are also planning on hosting an appreciation party for our friends in March to say "thank you" for helping us raise money for Africa.

In other news, Laura's sister/Julie's cousin is about to have her first child! The due date is February 27th and the whole family is waiting patiently to meet it's newest addition.

Africa can't come soon enough. We are really looking forward to helping out as much as possible and connecting with the people there. It will be a new experience for both of us and a dream come true.
