Up Up and Away!




Today our family took us to the airport to see us off on our big adventure. It was such an exciting time. Once getting through security with a camera, video camera, and laptop it was a piece of cake. We were able to get some breakfast while waiting our chance to board the plane. Everything seemed to be going well....UNTIL....the captain of the plane come over the loud speaker and said that all passengers would have to get off due to something be wrong with the hydraulics and that it was going to take at least 45 minutes for the workers to get to the airport to fix it. This was the first bump in the road. Kirk and I patiently awaited while American Airlines tried to get us on a another flight so that we would not be late for all of our other flights.We ended up flying to Dallas by Northwest then catching an American Airlines plane from Dallas to Tokyo. We just arrived in Tokyo and exhausted does not come close to describing how we are feeling. We just flew on a plane for 13 hours and are waiting on our flight to Vietnam which is another 6 hours. Please continue to pray for us, our health and sanity. Just thought I'd let you know what was going on in our crazy world right now. That's all for now!

Went to bed with you on my mindand woke up this morning the same way! Thanks for the update! By now you're in Vietnam breathing the same air as little Ema! Praise the LORD! Finally!
Know that Charles and I are praying for you and have asked others to do the same.
May you feel the presence of our LORD & Savior as you walk forward. It occured to me that sweet Ema might never have heard of Jesus had God not lead you to her! He has a Master plan for our lives! PTL!

For the last couple of days, I have prayed and thought about you often. I can't imagine the joy, fatigue and anticipation that you are feeling right now. Enjoy every minute... for you have truly been blessed by God. In just a few hours, you will finally have Ema in your arms.

I was thinking about you guys yesterday! I took an extra long glance at your house as I drove by on the way to church and I couldn't believe that you were actually on your way to meet Ema! It's so exciting! I hope the rest of the trip goes smoothly and that you get home safely. I'll keep checking the blog for updates and pictures!

Hope you two are getting over your jet lag and adjusting to the time change. From here on out, you will never sleep again... just kidding! Enjoy your first day in Hanoi and say hello to everyone for us!
