~Flying back to Colombia~

Well we have things nearly all packed to head out the door
But each time we think we're done packing, we find more! =)
Thank you for your thoughts and nice comments that show you care...
With the L.O.N.G. night ahead of us...THANKS TONS for your PRAYERS!
                                                                                                     ~Heather~

Jesus has helped us and we have a lot accomplished, but still have a lot of "wrapping up" to do.  Our landlady is supposed to come at 11:00 P.M. and then we are to leave at midnight (10:00 P.M. Ohio time) for the airport.   
We plan to spend the night in the airport (and with 5 kids...that should be a MEMORABLE night ;-)...
and then our plane leaves on Wednesday, March 7th, 6:45 AM, heading to Bogota, Colombia! 
We have a layover in Sao Paulo, Brazil  (Which is NO fun for a lot of people around us are speaking and the announcements are in Portuguese, which we don't speak.  Every once in awhile we do catch a word that is similar to Spanish.) 
Then we land in Bogota sometime Wednesday afternoon/evening, Lord willing.

Please pray:
~That we have a good night in the airport (with 2 babies not getting much sleep!)
~That we can CHECK in our luggage and go back to our gate so we can "rest" more comfortably than out front where the airlines desks are!
~For our kid's ears when we fly.

Thanks for your prayers!!!  I'll try to blog as soon as possible after arriving in Colombia.

Dear Heather,
I'm reading this after I got the RopeHolders email telling your Phillip's story this morning of him getting left while the rest of you had to go on ahead! I am praying for you all day today--as are many others that things will be worked out quickly concerning his passport. Please know we care and are praying much! Sharon Knight (Melanie's friend)

Praying for you all. (Just read on Hausman's blog of the passport problem.) May Jesus be close to each of you!!

Praying by the hour for you and the awful disappointment that you faced. It sounds like God used it to touch a life in Argentina. Only He knows what this wrinkle could do for His Kingdom. I know it must have been hard for you all. We are waiting to hear that you and the children are home safe and praying for Phillip as he flys today. Love, Moma
