After 24 hours of plane rides, layovers, and small road trips, we’ve made it from the northern tip of the USA, Seattle, Washington, to the southern point of MEXICO, Margaritas, Chiapas. I walked off the plane in Mexico City remembering all the times I asked God to make this trip possible and now here we were, 7 of us on our way to spend a month in Mexico.
We are also thankful that our luggage made it safely through. There was one bag that stayed behind in Mexico City but was sent to Tuxla today. Joanna and I will be driving back to the airport to pick it up with Julie Terrell, WHO BY THE WAY HAS BEEN INCREDIBLY SWEET TO OUR ENTIRE TEAM! Her and her husband, Nathan Terrell, are missionaries here in San Cristobal and have always swung their doors open as wide as the universe to our entire family any time we’ve come through.
Please continue to pray for safety and protection from sickness. We’re all excited to be here with Matthew, Kyle and Suzy and can’t wait to live out these coming thirty days. It’s crazy to think we live our whole life planning, preparing and anticipating, all without knowing if any of it will really happen. I know a month has thirty days and I know, Lord willing, those days will come and go, but as to what the end will be I can only close my eyes and commit to God. I KNOW HE’S IN CONTROL.
The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but victory rests with the LORD. Proverbs 21:31
