Mississippi Bound

Just a quick update on our upcoming trip and a few specific prayer requests. We leave Friday from Malawi at 3:20 pm, arrive in Johannesburg, South Africa, around 5:30 pm and then depart from there headed to New York at 7:30 pm. We will then be in the air for approximately nineteen hours. We will then fly to Detroit and then down to Jackson.

Please pray that we can tie up all loose ends before leaving on Friday.

Please pray for the girls especially on the long flight. We were able to get bulkhead seats for four of us, so we will be able to stretch our legs somewhat.

Please pray that I won't have an attack on the plane. It is so painful and there is no relief.

Please pray that we would be able to sleep some. Since the long flight from South Africa to New York is at night, maybe we can catch some zzz's.

Please praise God that the headmaster was able to find a person to sub for me while we are gone. Please pray for my students that they would stay on track.

Please praise God that Sam was able to find someone to help him with his classes and chaplain duties at the college. Please pray for Sam’s students as well that they would stay on track.

Please praise God that Amber Elizabeth and Molly Grace's teachers were very understanding about us having to pull them out of school for five weeks. Please pray that they won't fall behind in their school work while we are away.

I praise God for all the many many friends we have and for all the emails we have received. Thank you so much for all your prayers. They have really been felt.

With love,
LeAnne (for all 5 of us)

We are praying for you, and we are so excited about seeing you and having you back "home" for at least a little while. What a blessing that the Lord is making arrangements there at ABC while you are away. Love and prayers from your Faith Family.
