You may not believe this, but Mark and I both agree that THIS was the smoothest overseas trip we’ve ever made! Five kiddos and 18 pieces of luggage and 9 carry-ons arrived ON TIME in Kenya last Thursday night at 10pm. When we left the airport in Charlotte, NC, not one bag was ever weighed. Every flight was on time. Arriving in the Nairobi airport, officials took one look at our large family and ushered us over to the “fast track” lane. We were through the line and had visas stamped in 15 minutes! (I know it sounds unbelievable.) We went downstairs to the baggage claim and quickly located ALL 18 pieces of our luggage. The customs official looked in one trunk then waved us on through. Our teammate, Debora Agnes was waiting with a big minibus and escorted us to our nice, clean, spacious guest flat. Our whole trip was a testimony to your prayers. Please keep it up.
This week, we continue to get settled in. Our main goal is to help the kids get comfortable with their new surroundings. We also need to find permanent housing and purchase a vehicle. Please pray for us about these things. Right now, our internet is not too great so communication may be a bit sporadic if you are trying to connect via email, facebook, or skype. On Monday, March 25th, we will be able to meet with all of our teammates who are in Nairobi for Prayer Day. We’re really looking forward to this.
