~We are home~

Well...it is 11:00 PM and we just got to our home here in Colombia! Our dear friend Bro. Jimmy picked us up from the airport! We Thank God for a very stress-free day of travel. God was with us all day long! He gave us a nice lady behind the counter at the airport this morning that weighed our baggage and let a few of our suitcases go over a few pounds without penalty, and He also helped us make all of our connections with no problems. Elijah did great and traveled fine. We could tell that people were praying for us for things went as smoothly as they possibly could when you travel internationally with 6 people...4 of those being under the age of 10, (and one of those being an infant)...with 11 large suitcases and 5 carry-ons, plus a diaper bag, my large purse, Phillip's computer case, all the kids back-packs, a large stroller and Sarah's doll. =D Needless to say we did not go unnoticed as we went through the airports or onto the planes. Hee! Hee!

We are happy to be home. Noah was so excited to see his bike that he has already taken it for a spin, and now he is upstairs in his room playing with his trains and cars. Kimberly and Sarah are going from room to room and seeing all of the things that they hold dear to their hearts.

Elijah is already tucked in his "bed" for the night. His bed for this first night (until we can get him a pack and play) is our maroon chair turned around against the wall. =)

I'll post pictures as soon as I can. Thanks for y'all's prayers...I wanted you to know that God answered them and we are back home safely! God is awesome!

And now this tired Mommy will bid y'all...Good Night! ZZZZZZZZzzzzzz! =)

So glad you all are home safely - your homecoming made me long to be back in Mexico even more! December 1 can't get here quick enough for me. I'm sure your Colombian friends are so happy you're back!
Love to all!

So glad you all made it back safely. I wish I could have made a trip to see you while you were here... but since I did not... then I guess I'll have to make plans to go out to Colombia again, sometime in the near future.

Much love!!!

We were so thankful to return home and get your phone messages that you were safe. Somewhere in those eleven bags you will find "your parts" of our Daddy and Moma hearts. How we miss you but we gladly give each of you back to the One that gave you all to us to go and serve a people that has so little and needs you so much. We have kept you close to the Throne today as you return to service. I Love You, Moma
