More Info On Zimbabwe-11027

11026-zimbabwe-funGreetings TMI! We left Orlando, and arrived safely at JFK in New York. We rushed through the airport and managed to grab some food before we boarded our next flight to London, England. We experienced pretty awesome turbulence during our flight, and got to see lightning close to our plane. We arrived in London with plenty of time to do a bit of shopping the airport. Claimet was temporarily delayed in customs. The team joined hands and prayed for God’s provision. 15 minutes later, Claimet walked through customs. Praise the Lord! After a 9 hr layover in London, we boarded our next flight to Nairobi, Kenya. Several of the girls complained of headcolds and ear pain, common with a lot of flying. We laughed at the beginning of the flight when we were instructed to cover our noses and mouths, as the flight attendants walked down the isles with “insecticide spray.” We enjoyed chicken or lamb for our dinner (at midnight), and then we were awakend at 4:30am for our
“breakfast.” We had a short stay in the Kenya airport before boarding our next flight to South Africa. The flight was a bit bumpy, but not as crowded as our flight to Kenya. We arrived shortly after 1pm, and upon reaching baggage claims, we realized we were missing 1 duffel, and our big metal motorcycle Sunday School crate. 45 minutes later, we found our duffel, and located our crate which is still in London. By this time, we had missed our flight to Zimbabwe. Bobbi and Claimet went out to find us another flight, while Suzanne and the girls had devotions. In addition to reading our Bibles, we read scripture passages on the Lord’s protection and provision during our trip, and thanked God for His mercy. Kenya Airways found us a flight to Zimbabwe on Friday @ 2:20pm. Until then, we will have to suffer at an amazing hotel, with hot showers, and all of our meal provided. (via Kenya Airways) The girls have been so flexible and cheerful this entire trip. They’ve kept their spirits through changes and jet lag, and have placed Christ number one. We can’t wait to get a goodnight’s sleep tonight, and finish our journey to Zimbabwe. As always, it’s a great day to pray for Zimbabwe! Many Blessings, the Zimbabwe Footwashing Team

    HI leaders, I just wanted to encourage you, in all that you are doing I’m sure you are getting tired too. Thanks for watching over our girls, this is hard on parents, kids, grandparents, leaders, everyone because we are all learning to trust God in different ways. Trust in the Lord with all your might, and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight. Love and hugs to all.

    I’m so glad to know where they are and they are ok! Sounds like a fun delay, glad they can rest 🙂 And also so thankful they are staying unified in the Lord, seems like boot camp did it’s job! Will keep praying, Ezzie had trouble with her ears before we left. She brought special drops of antibiotic if anyone needs to know. These updates are awesome, thank you!

  10. Thank you for the update. I had just looked at the schedule thinking the girls had landed in Bulawayo and were on their way to base. Now we know how to pray for them. Hopefully this will allow them to reach base healthy, rested and ready to hit the ground ministering.
