And the Journey begins…

Packing for a move to Brazil

Our Lord and God is good. As of today, the Gilpin family has been officially ticketed for a one-way trip to Belém, Pará, Brazil. On the morning of 29th of October, the family will load up themselves along with more than a dozen suitcases and carry-on bags as well as passports with visas for a trip to Charlotte, North Carolina to load a plane bound for Belém via Miami and Manaus. Upon arrival, the family will either have temporary housing or will have the home which they will be living in for years to come. Other then this, we know little else to tell you…more to come… but next time from Brazil. As we leave, please pray for a save trip, for culture shock that will take place, and for language and cultural acquisition.
