... but not for good.
Tomorrow we leave for our 5-month "furlough" to America. We laugh at the word "furlough" because we really are NOT going back to relax from the ministry!
It will take us 5 flights to reach our final destination in Kansas City. From there we will have another hour to travel to pick up our van that we are renting from a Missionary Transportation Service. No worries, though... we will be staying in a hotel 1 1/2 nights in New York, after the third flight. With three kids and one on the way, we will need that break from traveling, I'm sure. And my sweet hubby was smart enough and so thoughtful to think about that!
When we arrived home from church last night we had an "alert" in our inbox. There is some type of undisclosed terrorist threat in Europe, and all Americans are being cautioned. That is all we know, but we are trusting God to keep us safe and keep our flights on track.
We will be flying from here to the capital city, Kiev. From Kiev to London. London to New York. New York to Atlanta. Atlanta to Kansas City.
Suitcases are packed. Prayer cards printed. Display table prepared. Video presentation finished. Schedule filled. Just need a good night of rest before we leave our house at 6am tomorrow morning.
Please keep this missionary family in your prayers, especially over the next couple of days!
