First Newsletter!

Hi Friends and Family! Hopefully you have recieved the Huckaby Family's first news/prayerletter in the mail today. We are super exctied about how they turned out and are deeply indebted to some lovely friends from Oikos that helped us pack, address, lick, and stamp almost two hundred letters. THANKS! We are busy working on putting together all the materials we need to get our work visas in Zambia (thanks Megan!), working up a proto-budget, researching all the traning requirements and even relaxing a little. We are currently housesitting and caring for some chickens and a large garden for some friends. It's so quiet!

It is fun reliving all these memories. Cherish them all, the good and the hard, and write them down as the rocks in the Jordan to remember... Press on in faith and in fear
!
Joshua 4:20-24

20 And those twelve stones, which they took out of the Jordan, Joshua set up at Gilgal. 21 And he said to the people of Israel, “When your children ask their fathers in times to come, ‘What do these stones mean?’ 22 then you shall let your children know, ‘Israel passed over this Jordan on dry ground.’ 23 For the Lord your God dried up the waters of the Jordan for you until you passed over, as the Lord your God did to the Red Sea, which he dried up for us until we passed over, 24 so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the hand of the Lord is mighty, that you may fear the Lord your God forever.”
