The First Week

Wow, its been a week. Our pastor told us that the thing he and his wife miss most about missions is the constant absolute dependence to see God show up everyday, or else they did not know if they were going to make it. It is so true. Thanks for praying with us. He has helped us on the airplane, through airports, with the luggage, sustaining the kids, living in a foreign capital city with 3 kids (including a 3 mo) without knowing anyone, connecting with friends and sleeping through the night. He has also thrown in feeding of giraffes, a random monkey and a wonderful new team just because he delights to. Lilli has been our photo journalist and has taken over a hundred photos on her fisher-price camera. S0, here is a look at our first week from three feet off the ground.


  1. We're keeping you in our prayers and thoughts. Thanks for the update!

  2. Precious. The background music made this slideshow so touching. Wish we could just pop over for a visit! :) Loved getting a photo update; will continue to pray here in Cambridge (and soon in Pittsburgh!!)

  3. What a WONDERFUL photo update from Lilli!
    We have been thinking of you and praying for you this week.
    Special Birthday Hugs to Amy today.
    Love from all of us here in California.

  4. Travis and Amy, was looking for an email addess to send this but couldn't find one. You don't know me, my name is Lee Ferguson but I'm better known in Bundgy as "Bethany's dad". Excited to hear that you are part of the team. Will be praying for you while you minister there especially the first several months. Know the adjustment will be something. You are, however, working with some of the finest people I know and will be eating some of the best pizza on earth every Thursday night! Give my love to all.
