Greetings from England! We had an uneventful flight (sans medical emergencies) and are enjoying a Starbucks as the sun rises in London. The team is doing great, our tears have dried up, and we are using our layover time to get to know one another better. The Euchre tournament has begun! We are awaiting the arrival of our UK team members who will join us on our flight to Accra.
When we left the church yesterday Pastor Dale prayed a very moving prayer for our team. He read from Psalm 139 and verse 9 is just so fitting for this moment in our journey….. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.
We are thankful this first leg of our journey to the far side of the sea has gone so well and look forward to getting our feet on African soil tonight!
(By the way, I about sent a photo of our team all drinking their Starbucks from my iphone….then I realized it would cost 51 dollars/MB….. I’ll let you use your imaginations!!!)
