We're Here

Our 24 hours of traveling, and then an additional 5 1/2 hours we arrived in Swaziland.

Our family encountered a small hiccup when our flight out of Nashville was delayed 2 hours because of weather in Chicago.

As a result, we got switched to another airline and put on a totally different flight than the rest of the team to South Africa.

In the end, it all went well. Both flights arrived around the same time. We all made it through customs and EVERY BAG arrived!! That is something to celebrate!

After our drive into Swaziland today, 12 of us went to the Swazi Cultural Center to take a tour and see a show of traditional Swazi dances and songs. It was awesome!

Tomorrow, we head to church and to the Halfway House(Swazi orphanage where Isaiah and Laila are from). I can't wait to see the children and women there and show them new pictures of Isaiah and Laila. They have grown and changed so much over the last 2 years!!

Please keep us in your prayers:
1. Adjustment to the new time zone and culture for our team.
2. Pray for us as we prepare our hearts to minister this week.
