Well….the journey has officially begun! We had a pretty smooth departure from Winnipeg. The group was all there on time….we got ALL our baggage on! There is a group of 22 travelling today (2 are meeting us there) and we packed in over 1 ton of baggage (2350 lbs). So quite literally we are bringing a ton of stuff with us 🙂
We all made it through security and we even found an extra guitar to bring along at the lost and found! The group is ready for the experience….full of anticipation….and a bit worried about the many hours of sitting ahead of us on the flights. All is well though. A few are under the weather….we would appreciate any prayers to help keep the group healthy over the next couple weeks as there is a few flu bugs flying around these days.
We have a few hours to kill in the Toronto airport before boarding to Frankfurt where we will have some time for a schnitzel or two 🙂 We have a 10 hour layover in Frankfurt before boarding the last flight to Jo-berg. So some travel ahead. We are encouraged….looking forward to what God has in store. We’ll keep you posted on our travels. For now….we wait for our plane.
