They have arrived in Julia's country

We just got a text from Tom and he and Caleb have arrived in Julia's country.  They must be beyond exhausted!  Now they will catch a train to Julia's region.  Those poor guys.  I hope they can get a good rest on Monday night so that they are ready for their hectic day on Tuesday collecting up all of Julia's documents.

Thank you for your prayers

We just recevied a text from Tom that he and Caleb are boarding a plane for the capital of Julia's country.  In short, the getting to go where they need to go :)  Once they get off the plane, they need to board a train to get to Julia's region.  This will be a trip that they will never forget!

Thank you, again.

Stuck in Germany

Tom and Caleb left yesterday for EE to bring our Julia home.  They have been sitting in an airport in Germany for the past 12 hours, trying to get to the capital in Julia's country.  Severe snow storms have hit this area of Europe and the airlines have been brought to a stand still.  I'm thinking of the families this past summer that were effected by the volcano ash that was floating above Europe.  Snow or volcanic ash, if it isn't one thing it is another!  Tom has sent us an e-mail explaining what it is like in the airport.  They have set up cots and put out water bottles and Twix bars to keep the "masses" from getting too cranky.  I wonder how that is working ;)

We would appreciate prayers for Tom and Caleb and all those traveling during this difficult time.  I know there are other RR families who are traveling right now too.  Some for their first trip and others returning to bring their children home.  Let's hope that everyone reaches their destination safe and sound.
