Hi friends and family! Thank you for your prayers! Our time in transit went without a hitch. The kids slept the first red eye leg of our flight, and played and ate the rest of the way. As that's 17 hours of travel where the kids had happy hearts, we give all glory and praise to God as that's definitely not within our finite capabilities to make them do. ;) We arrived her...

Bolivia 2015 - Update #2 - Team 2 has arrived..

We (Dennis and I) arrived yesterday evening after a long 24+ hours. The start of our first leg from Oakland to LAX didn't go so well as our flight was delayed for over 3 hours. Eventually, we arrived at LAX at 12:30am, and napped for 2 hours at the hotel before heading back to the airport for our flight at 6am. The rest of our flights were pretty smooth, and we finally rea...
