Monday, March 30

Well, we were supposed to leave for Japan this morning, however our flight was cancelled. Our plane got hit by lightning on the way into Columbus, and the lightning put a hole in the plane. NO JOKE! So, we couldn't get out today. We have another flight scheduled for tomorrow morning, so please pray that all will go well tomorrow.

The good news: the airline put us up in a hotel and gave us food vouchers. Nice to have a place to rest our heads and relax today (we only got about 3 hours of sleep last night).

The bad news: we will have one less day to get adjusted to new time and life in Japan before school starts next Monday. The airline we fly tomorrow charges more for overweight luggage than the airline we were supposed to fly today, so we are praying we won't have to pay the more expensive fee.

We know God is in control and has a reason for all of this, so we are just waiting and trusting in Him today.

On our way to Japan...or so we thought...

(If I get ambitious today, maybe I'll post pictures from my family's visit this weekend.)
