Got to enjoy a service with family and friends at HBC before heading out on a late night flight From Atlanta to Abidjan. Passed through Paris then over the Mediterranean and Sahara Desert landing in Ouagadougou for a short pit stop and passenger exchange. Delta and Air France personnel could not have been more kind. And, the stewards/stewardesses were doing everything possible to meet everyone’s needs on the two long flights. Arrived at 1am in ABJ and was picked up by our smiling Lebanese friend, Arfan. They had a bed ready and waiting for us.


Today we got our trusty Ford truck and got to the orphanage with 36 orphans and the staff cheering us through the gate. Many hugs ,with encore’s, and a devotional time with lots of heart warming singing.

We are humbled to be loved by so many people all over the world and to be shown such kindness wherever we go. Also thankful to have the Lord as our friend. HE is the best traveling companion anyone could have. We are sojourners together… passing through this world TO our Heavenly home.
