So set up your Straight Talk account a few days early, maybe Sunday before you leave. Since the Straight Talk account isn't phone dependent but, instead, is tied to the SIM card, you should be able to get the account started without having the phone. Then start the process to get the number ported.
This way you can have things taken care of before you leave, get the VM number ported over without have to worry about a new month, and when you arrive home you'll just have to put the SIM card in the phone to have it up and running with you current number.
