flying back… Sunday!

April 16, 2015

We bought tickets!

A couple months ago we submitted all the paperwork for Baby G’s permit. After that, we bought tickets for April 19. Since then we’ve kept busy visiting people in Illinois, speaking at churches, moving back to Iowa, and packing. In the middle of it, I neglected to update our blog.

Beginning on Sunday, we’ll fly back to Honiara by way of Phoenix, Los Angeles, and Fiji. We’ll land in the Solomon Islands on Tuesday afternoon their time, if all goes as expected.

Although all of Baby G’s paperwork has been submitted, his residence permit has not actually been completed yet. It needs to be completed in the Solomon Islands by the time we land there so that if the immigration officials there will be able to find it if they decide to check. You can pray that it will be done by then.

There are lots of things we need to do as well as lots of things we need to let go of. It’s tempting to get anxious about finishing up computer work and packing the right things. Tempting to wonder what we’ll do if our flights get delayed, if the boys get bored, if anyone gets sick on the plane, etc.

Yesterday I was explaining our upcoming flights to Little D. He pointed out: “If one our planes isn’t at the airport at the right time, we can just call a bus and go sleep in a hotel. So it will be no problem.” I’m praying that God will help us all be that relaxed this week.
