Well – we started out our journey on Wednesday morning from the Crowsnest Pass. School was cancelled that day because there was freezing rain, and our car was coated in ice. After a stressful drive, and through the gracious help of my aunt and uncle, we and all our luggage got to the airport. Our flight was amazing, and we were able to visit 2 friends in London besides Kay, whom we stayed with. We woke at 4 am to the smoke alarm going off because a hot water pipe had burst! It was all very disorienting at first, but our unfortunate hosts had to deal with a plumbing emergency in the wee hours. We spent the next night in a coffee shop at Heathrow airport due to early flights and luggage, but were able to shower in the lounge before takeoff. We had geat flights, which we mostly slept through, before arriving in Kigali in the evening. One of the staff got married yesterday, so we attended part of his wedding and were able to greet many people because of that. After a whole night of sleeping we feel much more human again.
Very excited for you! Can’t wait to hear about your life there bit by bit. We love you and are praying for you in this amazing journey with God.
I am glad you made it safely, even with the slippery start! Thanks for letting us know you made it. Good luck with your new mission, take care! We had our first harvest, with all the rain it was very wet. We had 2 tons of Cabernet franc, the best quality they have picked so far. I can’t really take credit for it though, apparently it has to do with our location. Just had to add that in there, very excited that the grapes are picked, now get we get a brak until February when we have to prune.
Yeah!!! So glad to hear from you and to see you made it safe and sound. I am so excited for you guys and the start of this journey!! I look forward to hearing more stories and seeing more pictures!! 🙂
Praise the Lord you have arrived safely. The incidents along the way add to the memories, but also to the knowledge of the amazing grace of our loving God for your safe travels. We love you two!!
