~We're Home!!~

THANK YOU FOR PRAYING!!!  After saying GOODBYES that ripped our hearts Pastor Jimmy, Sis. Farly, Natalie, and Gaby...we left Bogota at 7:20 AM.  After going through 3 different airports, and being on 3 different airplanes...We arrived safe and sound last night in Cincinnati around 7:40 P.M.
We had quite the FUN WELCOMING CREW awaiting us!!  =) (pics coming later)
We could tell y'all were praying.
1. We didn't have to pay ONE DIME for the nearly $400 that they COULD HAVE charged us for our 14 large suitcases.   PRAISE THE LORD!!
2. The kids' ears hurt them, and one of them cried, but Thank the Lord it only lasted about 10 to 15 minutes.
3. We were DREADING going through Miami airport due to the LONG LINES, not being very organized and being so huge we were afraid we'd miss our next flight, like we did last time we went through that airport!!!  But Jesus helped, we had only a few people in front of us at each line, and although we had to reclaim all of our luggage and then re-check in again at the front desk, we made it safely to our next flight.
4. The only SAD THING was that our 5 carry-ons which are FULL of our GLASS things we wanted to bring home and our TREASURES...GOT LOST!!!!!  As we were boarding our 2nd flight they announced that the plane would be very FULL and asked everyone to please put their carry-ons underneath.  They made tags for our 5 bags, but we didn't notice until last night when our bags didn't arrive, that she had put another name like "Juan Macharco" on OUR BAGS!!! =(
Last night, they did a lot of checking and our bags arrived at the Cinci aiport today.  Lord willing they are to arrive here to our house any minute!!! PRAISE THE LORD!
I PRAY that all our fragile glass things inside are still in one piece.  I'm sort of dreading opening them.  =(  (Where's my Faith? =)
~We're so TIRED I hardly know my name, but we are feeling VERY LOVED and trying to get settled.
Lord willing, I'll try to do a blogpost tomorrow with Lots of fun pics.  =)
THANKS AGAIN for your prayers!!
