We have landed!

Well….we made it to Johannesburg!  We are all in one piece and partially awake.  We had a long 11 hour flight from London and a few got some sleep.  We arrived around 7AM and are now just waiting for our ride to pick us up around 10:30 AM.  All of our bags made it except for one.  One of the bags with care packages was left in London….but it is being sent on its way and will be flown straight to Manzini for us.  Hooray.  Not bad United.

Team is doing great….a bit groggy but eager to get settled in and very eager for a flat bed.  Health has been all good now…..no sickness on this last flight.  We now have a 5 hour drive ahead to Manzini and then we’ll be settling in.  Very very excited to get to the care point tomorrow at Bhobokazi.  You’ll start hearing from more than just me by tomorrow too 🙂

We would love your prayers as we cross into Swaziland as there are some new rules about bringing stuff in and we have all the care packages to get across the border.  Hopefully this will happen without incident.

Can’t wait to start sharing some pictures and stories from our care points.  We are all well….I miss my family already….I hope my wife is surviving with the 3 little ones 🙂

Oh….and I forgot to share this photo from London but this was a real highlight for Adam and LeeAnn….just our luck to run into someone famous in London!  And poor Carolyn didn’t get to see them.

Till later!!

Jon & a ready to roll Swaziteam!

  5. What an adventure already!! It’s 8am in Winnipeg so I’m thinking that you guys should be on your bus and nearly there. I pray that the care packages made it in to the care points! I can’t wait to hear about all the adventures but really really really want to see a picture of Bonnie in a skirt!! I pray that you will all continue to bond as a team and that God fills you up with love that is overflowing so that the children, D-Team, Gogo’s can have a renewing to their souls while you are there! Be blessed can’t wait to hear more!

  8. Good “afternoon” to you all! If I’m calculating things correctly – you will just be arriving in Manzini right now. So glad for the good news story of all bags, except for one – but happy to know they are going to ‘deliver’ the other. Have been praying that all care packages make it across the border and will be happy to know the ‘praise report’ later! Thanks for the ‘newsy’ updates. ps – Amy R, sorry the Senators took a loss last night 😦

  10. I’m loving the blog already. Thank you to the Cheadles for posing – I’m living vicariously through you for that awesome moment. (big William & Kate fan) I guess I should thank the sharp eyed person who spotted them, and took the photo as well. 🙂

    As you go to Bhobhokazi, each teammember is surrounded with prayers. Thank you for taking us with you. I for one, am delighted to pray for you, and with you. {{{{{HUG}}}}
