We set out for our adventure Nov. 1st, with this picture of our four kids fresh in our minds from the night before.
first flight seemed quick and quiet. I am so grateful for the friends and family that the Lord provided to care for our children while we were going to be gone. I spent the first flight reflecting on and reading my journal from my May Trip to Sierra Leone. The page where I wrote this scripture speaks straight to my heart again and again.
Luke 10:42 Mary has chosen what is better and it will not be taken from her.
We flew from London to Sierra Leone. We landed in Sierra Leone about 8pm. After we got our bags we headed out the door to the water taxi unfortunately things took a strange turn. I walked up to the counter and a man stopped me at the curb, kind of swindled us on to the wrong water taxi. What an ordeal. Long story short after things got worked out we ended up missing our water taxi and had to charter a boat to come pick us up.
So...paid the extra $$$, hopped in a 'tiny' boat across the bay in the dark!
(Did I tell you it was raining?) phew... finally got picked up by our wonderful missionary friends and tucked into bed! Thank you Lord!
Breathe... He has a plan, and we are along for a delightful crazy ride…
