On Our Way

This was a quickly made video that didn't copy correctly. Many words are missing at the start and the timings are off, but here it is anyway.

The next pictures you see (hopefully) will be of our new son IN OUR ARMS! Of course, I have NO idea what to expect as fat as updating, but we hope to at least once during the trip.
Prayer requests
Boys at home:
Healing for Max's strep and ear infection
No Lonliness...or at least that grandparents would be comfort where there are no parents.
Protection from any more sickness.

Please pray for our travels: that the babies would be pleasurable on the flights for the sake of us and the others on board.
Protection from sickness and injury.
A smooth transition for our new son!

Also please pray that our time in Africa would be eye-opening, life changing, and direction giving. All from our great God and Father.

Here's the agenda:
We leave Portland at 12:30am
Spend the day with Jon and family on Monday
Fly to Amsterdam - Sudan - arrive in Ethiopia 10:00 their time (noon Oregon time) on Tuesday.

We will meet Noah the next day after a meeting with our lawyer!!!

We return on Friday the 18th at 9:30am. Anyone reading this within distance of us is welcome to come to the airport.

Until later. Goodbye.

You're flying through Sudan?
We will be praying for you and looking forward to hearing how it goes.
God bless you guys and give you safe travel.

God willing, we'll be there to meet you at the airport.

Hugs and kisses. And we'll check on Max and Jakey and hopefully have a play day with them. :)

I love the new video. Seems like just a few months back when you made the first one with that song.

Now, go make that boy smile! Oh, I am just so excited for you guys. I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes, but smiling.

Your little Noah. I can't wait to hold him. :)

Jodi and Josh- We pray God's hands will carry you safely to Noah. I know you have asked for God's wisdom and guidance and He has directed you on the exact path you are to travel. Our prayers go with you all. What a blessed child Noah is to have you coming for Him. There is no mistake in the will of the Lord. Hug Him for me when you get Him. I am sure he needs some catch up hugging. We Love you.
