Well….we are here! We have landed and made it successfully to South Africa. The team is all in one piece….mostly anyway. The flight was LOOOOOOOOOOOONG….really long. But there was still a fair share of laughter and a few people getting some sleep.
There were a couple of team members that got hit a bit with motion sickness….Kelly (my wife) got hit really hard and was basically sick for the whole 18 hour flight….it was tough but now that we are on solid ground she’s doing WAY better and is ready to go.
Jumbo and Mark (Mark & his wife Allison will be our hosts here) met us at the airport and ALL of our luggage arrived safe and sound. What a relief. We drove to our hotel and settled in….had a light supper and a few of us skyped home.
We are all just settling into bed now….it is late afternoon for you folks and 11PM here in Jo-berg. Everyone has gone to bed but we’ll see if everyone can fall asleep. We all wish we could see the Watoto Children’s Choir tonight! That should be great….and will probably be a packed house.
We send our greetings to the church….it is SO wonderful to have everyone along with us on the journey. Thanks for all the comments already. Tomorrow we wake up at 7AM and start the 5 hour drive to Swaziland. We are all excited…tired…giddy…and ready for what God has for us.
Until tomorrow (provided we have internet) we bid you goodnight. Have a great night with the choir. Lots of love….
