It's OFFICIAL

We have OFFICIALLY been accepted as short term MISSIONARIES, yes I said MISSIONARIES for the Evangelical Covenant Church! Our plan...
We are actually not going to be going to Ecuador for at least a year. I will finish up my last year of graduate work and then HOPEFULLY I will be able to do my residency (similar to what a doctor has to do, it's 300 hours of clinical work in the field)in Ecuador working with either a nurse practitioner or a doctor. We will plan in going in either fall of winter of '09 for a 1-year short term experience, come back to the states and finish raising our support, and then go LONG TERM! We are so pumped and I just thought I would share it. The dream is getting closer.

Yeah! Congratulations! I hope you get to do your residency hours in Ecuador since it would be so practical for you. But 300 hours!? No fair! We had to do 4,000! It's going to be over before you know it!
