Global warming?  NOT!  We’re working on attempt #3 to get back to Africa.  Our first flight was canceled when Chicago was shut down, along with most of the mid-west, by a massive snow storm on the 12th of December.  The next available flight was the 22nd of December….and on the 21st London was shut down by their biggest snow storm in 25 years and the coldest December in 100 years.  Again our flight was canceled.  God was good, however, as we weren’t stuck with tens of thousands of people waiting things out for days in Heathrow.  Instead we stayed with Susan’s Uncle and got to see all her extended family in Georgia over Christmas, and enjoyed the first white Christmas in Atlanta since 1882.

And now we’re off again. We leave for London on the 28th, and from London for Nairobi on the 30th.  The weather forecast is looking good for now.  We’ll just have to see how we do.

Merry Christmas!

The best laid plans of mice and men gang aft agley.  Or so the saying goes.  True enough this time. Our return to Africa has been delayed by a week.  Everyone in the US, I’m sure, knows that a major winter storm clobbered the midwest.  Our first leg to return to Nairobi was from Atlanta to Chicago, and was one of the 1400 flights canceled.  Ah well.  No worries, we’ll go tomorrow. Well, no.  The first available flight from London to Nairobi isn’t until the 22nd of December.  So we’re in the US for another week.  It does give us a chance to see some more of Susan’s family, which is good, and to take care of a few loose ends like mailing some things.  But it does mean taht we’ll be really rushed to get some things done before Nairobi shuts down for Christmas when we get back.  But for now, we’ll simply enjoy some more time with family.

Merry Christmas!

I haven’t posted for a while because, well, there’s not been much to post.  We’ve been in the US since November, going through some training at Master’s Mission for a week, visiting family, and I’ve been getting a float plane rating.  it’s been a good visit, productive, enjoyable, but also coming to a close.  We head back to Kenya on the 12th and get back to work.  Lots of stuff to do with getting moved to Entebbe, getting the AIM Air ministry in central region really working, getting Alex back to RVA, getting the girls going again with home school….the list goes on.
