We Are Here!!!!

We are here!!! We arrived safely in Brian's country today. We flew out Sunday evening, we had a wonderful layover somewhere special, our Pastor suggested that we take a little bit of time together at the beginning of our trip. Thank you Pastor!! We are so glad we took some much needed time together, our lives are about to change in a big and amazing way. The Lord is giving us another child to love and to raise for His glory. Thank you Jesus!!

So the first day we had a layover in a place where neither of us have ever been before. We loved it, we hope to go back some day when we have a little more time. I would love to post all the pictures we took, but that would make this a VERY LONG blog post, and we did not take as many pictures as we would like to have taken, it started to rain.....no big deal, we are used to it, but juggling our cameras and the umbrella was not fun.

We must have been doing somthing right, a lady with a british accent asked us, the people with our USA accents "Is this the way to Buckingham Palace?" Wr replied "Yes"...then as she walked away, we said quietly to each other..."we think so". It indeed was the way to Buckingham Palace! :)

Well, I need to go, I will post more later. Please pray for our Appointment on Thursday, pray that things go well. Pray for our children that are at home, and our daughter who is staying with some friends. It was so hard Sunday when we left, I had a HUGE lump in my throat when we left, and it lasted a long time. I start to get another lump in my throat when I think of my children. I would get a lump in my throat and an ache in my heart, if I were still at home and not here right now.
 I love all my children.
To God be all the glory!!
