The countdown has begun!

Man, so much left to do in so little time! Kinda startign to freak out, but I'm not too worried, I know God has my back. All my stuff is getting put into boxes, and the few things I'm bringing are being kept in a special spot so I can throw them into a bag this weekend. Financialy, I'm pretty close to being set for the whole 7 months. About $1500 short, so that's not too bad, [(Well done God!) And thanks again to those who gave!!]

I think I found a girl who lands in the Dresden Airport about the same time I do, so I'm hopping to have a traveling companion so we can get lost in a totaly foriegn country together! Ha ha.

I'm being sent off in church this week, so those who are able, please come to see me one last time!

I'll be making some more posts during travel. I'll post something if/when I find internet in the airports and whatnot, so keep an eye on the blog and facebook, too! I fly from Seatac on the 31st into Phillidelphia, from Philly, I fly to Munich, then from Munich to Dresden. Then from Dresden, I'll (hopefully) be meeting up with another girl from Washington, and we together will take the train from Dresden to Lobau (Sachs) where staffers from the DTS Base will be picking us up, then it's smooth sailing from there.

Keep me in your prayers!!!

Love, Joe Laurvick

Preperations under way

Whew. God is good is all I can say. He's provided me $2000 from friends and family with more on the way! Thank you to all my financial supporters! And earlier today, I went to church and asked them for some money, still waiting on the word, but i know God will come through. Bought my plane tickets (Both there and back), and prep for travel and living in a foreign country for 7 months is under way. Keep me in your prayers!
