So here we are.
We knew this would happen. A blink of an eye and it would be summer.
Today we are TWO MONTHS from flying to Lesotho! Right after I took the NCLEX I started packing things up in our apartment. Who knew you could accumulate so much stuff in such a short amount of time with only two people?
Our apartment lease runs up early July and we will move into my parents house for the remainder of our time in the States. A huge shout out to Justin and Ryan Hatfield, Mo Feliciano, and Tanner Goins for helping Tyler move our heaviest furniture this past Saturday.
We are currently living with no dressers, no kitchen table or chairs, and no couches and we are loving it. We have our patio chairs standing in as couches, my desk as our kitchen table, and plastic tubs as dressers and it’s working just fine.
God has given us so much peace during this time. Don’t get me wrong, there have been some really sad moments where we walk into the house and feel how empty it is. We had an amazing few years in this apartment, and we are grateful God has given us such a great place to call our first home.
We still have a lot to accomplish over the next two months, but we are so excited to keep checking off the to-do list as we count down the days!
Tyler & Rachel
And the hardest part of the transition is………….
Advice: Pack LIGHT and then re think it and pack again. Things that seem necessary in America are not often so in other countries. You have been there so you have the advantage of “thinking Lesotho” as you pack. Go in joy and energy as you serve God recklessly!

Your apartment is still adorable – cuz you two are still in it! Love hearing from you about all you’re doing to prepare for your journey together!
