Two Weeks Till Porgugal!

So the countdown has begun.  Well, sort of.  I didn't realize until today that we only had 2 weeks and now, I feel like there's a lot to do.  Here are a few shots of Portugal from Mike's trip:

Number one on the list is collecting food.  Michelle and I organized the meals we think we are cooking and figured out how many of each ingredient we will need and in what country we need to buy that ingredient.  Then we passed out the list and are asking people to donate what they can.  We are accepting grocery gift cards as well because I'm sure there will be a few last minute items.

Here's our list:
Bag Chocolate Cookie Mix 5 bags

Box Mashed Sweet Potatoes 4 boxes

Box Pie Crust 4 boxes

Box Stove Top Stuffing 3 boxes

Can Crushed Pineapple 2 cans

Canned Pumpkin 9 cans

Canned Cranberry Sauce 6 cans

Cherry Pie Filling 2 cans

Crackers (Wheat Thins) 2 boxes

Crasins (4/3 cup in 1 bag) 10 bags

Dream Whip Package 7 pkg

Evaporated Milk 11 cans

French Fried Onions 1 container

Gravy Packets 5 packet

Kraft Homestyle Macaroni 2 boxes

Large Marshmallows 2 bags

Pecan Pie Mix 2 boxes

Pickle Relish 1 jar

Ranch Dressing 1 jar

Raspberry Chipotle Sauce 1 jar

Seasoned Stewed Tomatoes - Italian Seasoning 2 cans

Turkey Oven Bags 2 boxes

Vanilla - Large Jar 1 jar

Williams Sonoma Pumpkin Bread Mix 2 boxes

Williams Sonoma Turkey Rub 2 packet

Yellow Cake Mix 2 boxes

If you see anything that you want to grab and drop off at the church then please do! 
As far as prayer requests right now just pray that God begins to work in the hearts of the Portuguese people and that they will be open to coming to the dinners we will be hosting. 
I'm so excited about this trip and I thank the people who are helping make it possible.  I heard a song on the radio this morning about going through the motions and it reminded me that I don't want to just go through the motions on this trip- I want to give it my everything and make sure that I'm giving it my all every day I'm there. 
More to Come!
