chicago + preston to india

Preston and I have been in Chicago since Friday for a honeymoon, anniversary, graduation getaway and it has been the perfect vacation. We stayed in a hostel in a cute, artsy area 10 minutes from downtown. We’ve done the museum thing, rode bikes around town, shopped & we even took a very long L train + bus ride to find little India. Little India was almost as magical as real India. All the shops looked like we really were in India. It was great.

We head home this evening and then Preston heads out to Kolkata early tomorrow morning with our pastor, josh. They will be meeting with our India partners and working out logistics for our move (which is 2 months tomorrow!). Please pray for their safety in traveling, that they will adjust without jet lag & that this trip will be fruitful and beneficial.

We are also still in need of $250 monthly to be fully funded. The Lord has continued to exceed our expectations with support raising and we know that he will provide this last little bit. thank you for praying with us & for supporting us.

joyfully,
alex

Preston got hit on and I’m pretty sure it was because of this awesome outfit.
