Bolivia Soon

post date: January 5, 2008
8:06 AM I stayed up until almost 1 AM loading my iPod Shuffle. Turned out to be easier than I thought. I haven’t played anything yet, but I spent an hour (or more) loading podcasts from various programs–mostly sermons and ministry broadcasts. I ended up with 21 hours of programming and 43 different podcasts. That should be more than enough for the upcoming trip.
Yellow fever vaccination certificate
Letter of invitation
Credit cards
$200 US cash (required for a Bolivian visa, which we will purchase at the airport in Santa Cruz)
Candy (requested by the missionaries)
Message notes
Dogs to Alan
Print out flight plans
Cell phone and charger
This morning I scanned and printed a few papers we may need. Here’s one fact that takes some getting used to. Because we’re flying south of the equator, it’s now summer in Bolivia. The current temp is 75, with highs in the mid-to-upper 80s and into the 90s some days. So we’ve had to find our summer clothes for this trip.
We leave for the Memphis airport in about 45 minutes.

In the book of Proverbs, King Solomon left us a treasure trove of practical principles for daily living. The ardent pursuit of wisdom is every Chistian’s calling! Wisdom “is a tree of life to those who embrace her. Those who lay hold of her will be blessed.” (Proverbs 3:18)

“Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
