We have made it to South Asia – bags and all! After almost 19 hours on airplanes, we are SO happy to finally be in country.
Other than seeing another traveler lose their shoe to an escalator (!!!), our travel was mainly uneventful. Our flights were packed with lots of naps, movies, and way too much airplane food. Everyone did great on the flights and I am very thankful for their upbeat spirits and positive attitudes!
For now, we are going to settle in to our hotel, hopefully catch a few more z’s, and get in a quick shower before orientation with our fieldworkers. We all are so very thankful for your love and support as we have prepared for this trip. We are finally here and cannot wait to see how God will use us!
We have 3 specific prayer requests for you all to keep praying for through our time here: 1) for boldness, wisdom, and tact as we share the gospel with those we meet, 2) for God to already be at work in the hearts and minds of those He places in our path, and 3) that many would come to accept the good news of Jesus Christ with gladness!
We love you! We will update you again very soon! 🙂
