I can hardly believe we'll be winging our way over the Atlantic on a KLM jet this time time tomorrow! I've been so busy getting ready for this trip that I have lost all sense of time. I also feel I have lost a large quantity of brain cells. It will be such a relief to finally be on our way. The preparations are the most challenging part. Once we board the airplane it is all downhill form there!
At least that is my hope...With a 16 month old in my lap the whole flight I am not quite sure what to expect.
I want to thank the many of you who have been faithfully lifting our family and team in prayer. We've already seen much fruit. Our team of girls have been so helpful and getting along great. Despite the chaos my child has been relatively behaved. Scott and I have been getting along decently and have managed to stay amazingly civil admist the stress.
Tomorrow we will long for your prayers more than ever as we head to the Atlanta airport in the afternoon. I must confess that I am not a good traveller. I dislike flying and am nervous on airplanes. This is something I battle every year. I believe it is the enemy's way of veering me off course. Thankfully the Lord has helped me greatly with my fears over the years. And while I still feel somewhat trepidatious and uptight during our travels, I know confidently that my Father holds me safely in His hand.
Every ounce of stress will be forgotten when we exit baggage claim in the Entebbe airport and see the warm smile of Theophilus waiting for us amid the crowd.
Stay tuned...the next post will be coming live from Uganda!
