Well, we have arrived in the US! Thank you for all your prayers for our safety. The flights went very well. Aaron was great on the plane. He was a hit with all our fellow travelers and with the flight attendants.
We actually arrived on Thursday to a greeting party which included 4 grandparents and an aunt and uncle. Aaron took a bit to adjust to the new time zone, but last night he slept through the night for the first time since leaving Singapore. What a wonderful thing!
We are enjoying the chance to see family and friends. Please pray for us as we travel a lot and try to fit two years worth of things into six weeks!
On the flight from Tokyo to Portland there was a large group of Japanese women flying over for the Portland Rose Parade. They thoroughly enjoyed Aaron, cheering and clapping any time they saw him. It was a lot of fun.
Thank you all for your many heartfelt prayers for Aaron. God took him through his jab without even a whimper! He had a bit of fever the next two days, but the medicine helped bring it down right away. What a little trooper!!
We look forward with great anticipation to our upcoming journey to the U.S. We are somewhat nervous about the flight; however, we trust that God will guide, protect, and carry us through! Please pray for safe travels and quick recovery from jet lag.
Renovations are underway at the new location for ICS. It is beginning to look splendid. Aaron and Betsy visited the library while Danny looked for some packed material he needed. They already set up the kids corner in the library. It is great!! There is so much room for shelves and shelves of books. Walls are going up in the classrooms each day. What a great blessing this campus will be!!!
