The evil deed is done!
We put the kids on their flight this morning at 5 AM and they should be in Lima right now. They were excited to find out there is a Dunkin Donuts at the airport in Lima. They will have another layover in Bogata and then, on to Miami where they will spend the night. 16 hours in transit.
Then they rent a car, head to my son and his wife's place in the Tampa Bay Area for a visit with all the family there, before heading to New Hampshire where they will be based for their furlough. (Most missionaries serve on the field for 4 years and then take a 1 year furlough stateside. During the year they travel extensively reporting to the churches what has been accomplished on the field during their term. It is also a time to further your studies and re- connect with family. It is NOT a year long vacation!)
Please keep them in your prayers today as it is no fun traveling so far with two toddlers!
