Counting Down the Days

Counting down the days until Amber leaves on her World Race.

When Amber left for college, we found Buddy. He traveled  with her everywhere she went. He went to Bible College.  Buddy went to Spain on Ambers cross cultural trip. He went with her to Cal U with her for her Bachelors. Buddy is fuzzy and a bit big to take on trip where ounces can count against you.
Buddy needed to stay home. (He was actually passed on to Branden, Ambers youngest brother)
Meet Clarence.
Amber's best friend has an elephant on the dashboard of her car and goes with her on her daily travels. She wanted Amber to have a 'friend' with her the next 11 months. Each post about Ambers race, I will include a picture of Clarence's adventures. (as long as he doesnt get lost along the way)

I also ordered a map of Asia off of Amazon.  I wanted to be able to visually see where she was sleeping, eating, missionarying, loving, working.

I ordered a poster of Amber from Walmart.
We will take this with us when we have special moments. It will go with us when Branden goes to college. At Thanksgiving she will have a place at the table. At Christmas she will enjoy pizza with us.

  1. Love the picture and elephant and the map. I also read alot about your parent get together and that special speaker...well she answered a few of my questions for you too. Like letting God and letting Amber grow in Christ and in herself. I really can't imagine all of this but through you I get to see it all happen. Thank you for starting this blog and for sharing the world with us.
    Take care Deb. And Amber, may God keep you safe and may you share your love of our savior with those who don't know or don't understand.
    Blessings to all of you!
