Praise God!: safely arrived in East Africa with all 8 children!

We thank our faithful God that we are here!  Our travel went smoothly, we made all our connections, and all luggage made it!  The children actually slept on the final plane flight, which rarely happens!

There were challenges: our first connection had us changing planes (with 8 children and 20 carry-ons) in only 55 minutes, but we were assured it was just a gate change within the same terminal... Well, it was the opposite side of the airport, then the car seat carrier's wheel kept falling off, we arrived to the gate and it was changed again...  I was reminded of the words of our pastor from New Orleans: "The devil is a liar," as he would have us despair in situations like this.  But God knows all, and the catering truck was delayed, so the plane was over an hour late!

We were greeted in Uganda by Ms. Amanda, the nurse with whom we'll be working in Sudan, and a group of Sudanese and Ugandan ministry partners.  Now we are at a guest house in the capital city of Kampala until our July 2 flight to Sudan.

Please pray with us for adjustment to the climate, culture, and time zone (the youngest two were up until 5 AM this morning!).

Thanks for your support and encouragement as we complete the "going" process!
