When we asked our travel agent to help us buy tickets from Colombia to Argentina, we FORGOT to tell her that we had brought 2 suitcases each to Colombia, so we had 100 lbs. each person to bring on to Argentina!
So...This was one of the MOST OVERWHELMING times packing in Colombia to fly to Argentina, for we knew that our suitcases were WAY OVER the allowed weight, but we were NOT HOME to leave anything there! :-(
The whole time we were packing and IN THE AIRPORT....I just kept PRAYING that God would PART THIS RED SEA FOR US!
God DID JUST THAT!
While watching the guy weigh our suitcases from across the airport...my heart was in my toes....but God created a miracle!
The lady at the checking counter KNEW that our suitcases were way over weight, but God moved on her heart and she charged us way less! PRAISE THE LORD!
Phillip had packed A LOT OF WEIGHT (school books) in our carry-ons, and we were AFRAID that if they weighed those, we'd be up a creek...BUT...Praise the Lord...they didn't weigh those, and we were able to get our school books here! :-)
Though Kimberly, Noah, and I had some ear trouble in the airplane coming down from HIGH Bogota to sea level Argentina...God helped it to not be as bad as it could have been!
We arrived here in Buenos Aires, Argentina at 4:15 their time this morning! God gave us a wonderful trip!
We have slept nearly all day, trying to catch up from our night in the airplane.
Soon, I hope to post pics of our SAD goodbyes in Colombia, (LOTS of tears were shed both by our family and by Pastor Jimmy and his family too) and I'll post pics of our airplane ride to Argentina!
Uncle Charlie and Aunt Yoli had the house here all cleaned and waiting for us!
We are not worthy of ALLLL THIS LOVE from people everywhere we go, but how THANKFUL we are, and want to try to live worthy of this love! :-)
THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR PRAYERS!!!!!! WE WOULD NOT HAVE MADE IT WITHOUT THEM!!!!
