The Journey Begins

Welcome to the Landes Family Blog. Thank you for joining us as we embark on a year of learning, loving and serving with the people in Colombia. We leave Hesston this Thursday and will arrive in Bogotá on Saturday early afternoon. Our last few weeks of preparation have been crazy busy as we have spent time with family and friends, while preparing our house and family for transition. The chaos has shifted to emotion as we make final preparations. We find ourselves already missing the people and places we leave behind and also being really excited about the new people, culture, language and geography we will meet in less than a week!

We look forward to sharing our journey with you and hope to give you a glimpse into our lives in South America. Please keep praying for our family as we transition into this new adventure. We have felt the love, prayer, and attention from so many over the past few months and cannot thank you enough for all you have done to support our family. Thank you all for your words of encouragement, financial support, prayer, and many other ways you have helped us and the kids get ready for the year ahead. Here we go!!
