We’re picking the blog back up because, well, we’re stepping out again and want to share it with you along the way.

As you can see, we changed the title of the blog because we’re are moving to Kigali, Rwanda at the end of January 2011.  We are going for a number of reasons, one of which is an amazing opportunity to work with Indego Africa (www.indegoafrica.org).  Indego Africa is an innovative social enterprise that seeks to alleviate poverty by providing export market access and business training to women artisans in Rwanda.  I (Casey) have taken the position of Country Director, and Cara will be filling in different roles as needed until she secures a job in her passion: HIV prevention.

Excited and overwhelmed are probably the best adjectives to describe us right now.  We have a lot to accomplish in the next four weeks: finishing our current job responsibilities well, packing all our belongings, packing for a move to Africa, selling what we can, hauling most of what we own to Montague, CA, looking for a place to rent in Kigali, and trying to see friends and family before we leave.  We do hope to see you all – it just may mean you have to come to the City to do that.

We are very thankful for all our loved ones who continue to be supportive and encouraging to us with our wanderlust and desire to live/serve overseas.  This opportunity came up unexpectedly (to us) but it’s been something we’ve been praying and dreaming about for a long time.  There is no better time than the present.
