Bon Voyage!

The suitcases are zipped. Final American meals have been partaken of. Good-byes have been said. Mike has the passports. (Is any surprised?) And, oh yes, the nerves have set in.

We leave tomorrow morning from Omaha on a 10 a.m. flight. We'll stop through Chicago, then Dulles before leaving at 6 p.m. for Vienna. We'll arrive about nine hours later. That means when the TWR-Europe PR team picks us up from the airport with lots of hugs and greetings, it will be about 3 a.m. our time. Whew! I am so excited to see old friends and meet new ones.

Please pray for our travels. We'd appreciate your prayers for safety, health, and all of our luggage arriving with us. Pray I don't drive Mike up the airplane wall with questions like "Are you SURE you don't want to play cards?"

Can you believe it? The next time we post we will be residents of Bratislava, Slovakia. God is infinitely wise and good and we wouldn't be here without His blessings and the work He has done through your financial support and faithful prayers.

Thank you.

P.S. - Mike and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary yesterday. We had a wonderful stay in downtown Omaha, and I can't wait to post pictures. What a fun date! And what an incredible year. To many more....
