This morning, at the airport, for the first time our whole team met face to face. We have team members from Alexandria, La Crosse, WI and Lakeville, MN. Sydney had a bit of a surprise this morning. She was planning on flying from La Crosse to Minneapolis to meet us at the airport. Her plane had mechanical problems, so her dad drove her to Minneapolis ... she made it with time to spare!! The first leg of our trip was uneventful and we arrived 15 minutes early into Newark, NJ. We have about a 5 hour layover before our flight to Ethiopia.
The team is excited and ready to "get busy". After so many months of preparation, it is almost unbelievable that we are finally on our way. We will update as much as possible the next several days. Thanks for praying for our team.
