Thank you for your faithful prayers for our safe arrival in Pretoria S. Africa. Our team met at Sky Harbor at 10 a.m. local time for departure just before noon. We made it safely to Atlanta for a quick connection on to Johannesburg. Other than it being a very looooooong flight we had no problems. Already it has been so satisfying to thank the Lord for His answers to your many faithful prayers. Julius, Cintia, Cliff and Bev met us at the airport to help us with our rental van and to get us where we needed to be. We made it here with all our bags but one! Thankfully it is the bag with some food and gift items for the Vicks, and not someone's "necessary" items, so after Mona filed a report we were on our way. You can definitely pray that the bag would be located and delivered. We had a simple yet delicious dinner of salad and potatoes and a wonderful time of first-time fellowship as a team here. Cliff and Julius led us through a brief overview of the week and we are very ready to begin this good work tomorrow - hopefully after a restful night in a real bed! We feel so blessed by the many comments on social network and emails we have received of your faithful prayers on our behalf - praise our amazing Savior!
