A plane leaves from Los Angeles on Sunday at 11:50 pm and travels southwest to Brisbane for 14 hours. When does the plane arrive in Australia?
If you answered Tuesday morning at 6:50 am then you would be correct. That's officially 31 hours after we left the U.S.! How is that even possible you ask? Time travel, of course, or a time warp or wormhole or something. I'm still working through the math…
In the meantime, will you all please pray for us as we take off from Raleigh tonight around 7pm for the west coast. Our second leg is from Los Angeles to Brisbane, and then our third leg is from Brisbane to Port Moresby. We will stay at a missionary guest house in Port Moresby Tuesday night and then fly up to Ukarumpa in the Eastern Highlands on Wednesday. Whew!
Please pray that we make all of our connections, keep up with all of our luggage, and that our paperwork makes all of the officials happy. And of course, please pray that kids and parents stay healthy and sane throughout the trip!
We're not sure what our communication may look like during our initial 9 weeks of training when we arrive, but email is still probably the best if you want to contact us.
