"i'm leaving on a jet plane"

Remember that song? My college roommate Erin used to sing it all the time as she was also trying to learn to play the guitar.

But, that says it... We're leaving! We are now 100% fully supported and board our plane tomorrow afternoon to leave for Budapest, Hungary. New tickets at amazing prices once again, praise the Lord! This time our layover is in Frankfurt, Germany. My first experience at that airport was nine years ago where I learned that you often have to pay to use the toilets and/or for toilet paper. It was not the most pleasant experience, but this time I know to carry some tissues with me wherever I go. :)

So we leave at 3:10 CST tomorrow and will land in Budapest at 10:45 a.m. Saturday morning after our stop in Germany. FYI-Budapest is 7 hours ahead of those of you in the central time zone, so 6 hours for those of you in the eastern time zone. So you'll all be sound asleep in your beds while Kevin and I will have to manage not sleeping again until late Saturday night, to help us adjust to the time change. Yeah! That's my least favorite part every time.

That's the latest. Thanks for all of your prayers! Probably will be blogging from Hungary next!

Wow ~ I can't believe that you are leaving tomorrow. Ryan and I will be praying for you and Kevin and Baby. We will be praying that the travel goes smoothly and that you are able to adjust to the time zone quickly. We will be praying continually for the health of both you and the baby. And of course we will be praying for your ministry! Keep in touch!
Love, Kristin

I'm sorry I won't get a chance to talk with you both before leaving, but please know that Shane & I are holding you up in prayer everyday. We're so excited to see how God is going to use you, as He already has in such huge ways. Looking forward to your next blog or email from Hungary. IT'S HERE!!! How good is God to have blessed you with this opportunity?! :) Can't wait to see some belly pictures, too, as little boy Yaiko grows strong! Be safe and know that we love you ALL so much.
