Well, not my favorite day today. After 36 hours of straight travel and maybe 12 hours of restless-sitting-up-straight sleeping, we arrived in Chicago to watch all the Winnipeg flights, as well as many others get cancelled, and never got a STRAIGHT answer why!! I guess God needed us to be together a little longer…maybe to test our new understanding of needs and wants? We are safe and healthy (except for a few spider bites that will definitely need some checking out). We have no luggage, not even the 5 team members (Amy, Haley, Lanyce, Steph, and Perry) we quickly sent off on a special Winnipeg flight earlier this evening. Shelley stayed behind to work with the Luke Commission, so our numbers are now down to 19 Swazi members. All very tired, frustrated, and VERY ready to come home.
As Gino last commented, some of us are booked on one of the three flights out of Chicago tomorrow with some chance of some of us still stuck here until Sunday. Please join us in prayer as we continue to struggle with flights, nerves, patience, and a strong longing to be home with our families!
Hope to be home soon,
