(Sorry this is a little late. No internet connection last night :()
We have arrived. Safe and sound. All bags are accounted for and (almost) all bodies are tucking into bed. Your prayers have guided us safely to the Mafus and we are incredibly thankful to you all for your support and your love. We have some very tired bodies, but the kiddos handled the flights as well (or better) than the adults and God brought us safely "home". :)
The Mafus greeted us with a delicious dinner and we are going to rest up to worship with our Zulu brothers and sisters tomorrow morning.
One brief request, before I too call it a night. My brother Andy and his son Tony - two of our team members - were unable to make their first flight to Dulles to meet us. Weather, delays, and perhaps a little of the Evil one at work. They are on their way now - one day later - and we would ask that you would pray them safely to this place to meet up with us. They should arrive tomorrow evening (South African time).
Thank you, again. We look forward to connecting with you as often as possible via e-mail to keep you informed about all that is going on here. And we pray for you all, at home, as well. Without you, we would not be here. And without God, none of this would be possible. God truly is good, all the time.
Sunday update - the sun is shining, it's 75 degrees, we've worshipped at two services and are now headed to the beach. Praise God!!
