Goedemorgen from Amsterdam!!
Hallo everyone! Just a quick update to say that we have safely arrived in Amsterdam and are currently enjoying an 8-hour layover before heading off to Nairobi, Kenya! Our flight went very smoothly, and the people around us were even kind enough to let us all sit together (although they may have realized their mistake soon after takeoff… A few of us had the “travel giggles!”). After a few cheesy in-flight movies and some lukewarm pasta, we dozed off to the sweet sound of crying babies. It’s currently 3:15 pm here, but 6:15 am in Seattle! Needless to say, our internal clocks are a little whacked. Thankfully, we found some free recliners in the airport and we have another long flight to Nairobi ahead of us!
Thanks to everyone who came to the airport to send us off, as well as all of the friends and family who have been praying! We really appreciate it, and I can’t wait to see how God will move through us and within us to change our hearts as we serve the beautiful people of Malawi!
