We got through security in Nairobi without a hitch and took off on time at 11:15 pm local time. In the past, our flight left at 11:50. While 35 minutes might not seem like much, it's a big difference when you're dog tired. We all got good sleep on the 8 hour flight to Heathrow and I'm writing this on my phone in Terminal 5. As I noted earlier, I left my laptop with my dear friend Barrack for use in his photography and his Fikisha ministry with the street children in the slum of Kawangware. While my backpack is considerably lighter, it feels very good knowing why. Thank you Lord for providing for your people!
Our next flight to Houston should be about 9 hours. We arrive there at 2:15 pm cst and should clear customs in about an hour. Randy is picking us up and I hope to be home before 7. With any luck, I'll get word out from Bush International airport that we made it that far. I wonder if we'll stop for Blue Bell in Brenham? Only time will tell! Keep following the blog for the next few weeks. There are lots of stories to tell and pictures to share that time, flaky Internet and exhaustion have kept from you so far!
