The date on our departure from Arizona changed by a few days because we got a better deal on air fare and this post has been changed to reflect that.
Well, for the second time, I’ve got the newsletter going out in the following month. You can download it from our Newsletter page. Better than no newsletter at all and things are crazy busy in the Peck house. We have 3 more weeks in Florida, including today. Then we will be on our way to Arizona for a couple weeks before we head to Hungary. So here is what our schedule looks like:
June 17th Our container leaves for Hungary
June 21st Our family leaves Orlando for Phoenix
July 12th Our family leaves Phoenix for Budapest.
We have a little flexibility on when we leave Phoenix but not too much. Ideally we want to get to Budapest with enough time to find a place to live before our container gets there. Otherwise we would have to pay for the moving company to store it until it can be unloaded. It takes a little time for the ship to bring it across the ocean, then it has to go to Hungary by rail and clear customs. So we should be o.k.
That means June is a busy month with lots happening. It’s been exciting to see God clear the way for all this to happen. He brought a great family to rent our place in Florida. They are on staff as well, they work for the Jesus Film Project. God also helped us raise some of the funds we need to move through a successful garage sale. And really money is the only thing that we still need to be completely released by CCCI to go. We need another $400 in monthly support and right about $10,000 to cover the cost of getting us and our stuff there. Then that will also cover the costs of getting settled in and purchasing some of the things we’ll need in Hungary. You can pray that in the next 5 weeks this will all be in place. In fact sooner than that would be a little better as we’ll need to report that we’ve finished and get formal permission to leave. It’s all pretty exciting.
