We're here!

We made it safely and are now at the infamous TGIF eating dinner and getting in touch with family and friends.  Tomorrow we should have a modem in our apartment and will be able to have internet connection from there. This picture was taken Saturday morning before our first flight (Maria - do the shirts look familiar?)....you wouldn't want to see us now! We've been awake for over 24 hours and are exhausted.  Joel didn't sleep a wink but I did catnap a bit :-)

  11. I am so glad you made it safely Marianne. Sorry about the luggage though. Is it cold?? It looks cold in the picture Joel posted. I have a million questions already, but I know you'll keep us up to date here, so I'll spare you :-).

    We had a wonderful worship service this morning. Dave Chilton preached from John, specifically how Christ washed His disciples’ feet, and how we should be servants like Him, modeling his humility and love.

    We sure did miss you all though, and can't wait for your return. BIG BIG hugs to you and Joel. We'll keep praying...
