Checking in

Hi everyone! I know I've been an absentee blogger but things were crazy this week!

We are off on our trip. Everything got packed (except Tom's jacket!) and we are in pretty good spirits.

We survived (somewhat) the 16 hour bus ride and are running around Lusaka today finishing up last minute business errands.

Please pray for our safe travels on our next two plane rides--both are 10 hours long--and our time in London. Pray for good weather as we do not have much in the way of cold-weather clothing and our poor blood has thinned out over the last nine years.

Please also pray for nine month old Jack. When I left the orphanage he was sick. He'd had a fever for 5 days. We had treated him for malaria but apparently the medicine didn't work because a blood slide done yesterday showed he still had malaria. He's now on his second round of malaria meds and a course of antibiotics. A lot of stress for a little body.

Our friends arrived Tuesday morning to look after the orphanage along with our current long-term volunteer and the hand over of responsibilities went smoothly. They even commented that we seemed very organized. Score!

Well, that is it for now. If I get a chance at the airport on Sunday I'll post pictures of our journey so far. I got a lovely picture of all the little ones saying goodbye yesterday. *Sniff* I'm gonna miss those guys.

See you on the other side!


  1. Have a great holiday Amy!!! Will keep your little one in my prayers..:)

  2. I'm praying everyday for your safe travels and warmth! Also praying for Jack and everyone at your orphanage. God Bless You!

  3. I'm so happy that I came across your blog and have enjoyed looking back through some of your posts! I hope you have a safe and joyful trip home. I will be praying for little Jack's protection and health and I look forward to following along.

  4. Wishing you safe and happy travels, and sending my prayers for little Jack!

    Thank you so much for visiting on my SITS day!

    Warmest wishes,
