Back in the USA!

We are back on US soil and boy does it feel good! It is Sun 3:30am and we are in a hotel in Houston awaiting our flight home! Silas was an angel baby and slept 12 hours on our 15 hour flight from Dubai to Houston. Hallelujah! But of course now he is up and running. I think mom and dad slept maybe 2 hours total off and on during the flight. We are all so messed up on our sleep with the time changes and traveling late. We arrived in Dubai from Ethiopia on Fri and did not make it to the hotel until 3:30am and had to be back up at 5:30am for our flight. We are pooped!

I can't remember if I've mentioned before or not....but we highly recommend flying Emirates. Lots of leg room, movies/tv to watch on your own mini tv & it just feels safe to someone who despises flying. I wish they flew within the US!

I don’t know if we’ll ever be able to put into words what we saw, felt & endured on our journey to Ethiopia. If you ever have the opportunity to visit Ethiopia or any third world country for that matter, jump on it. You will not be sorry and will be blessed immensely. Our hearts are forever changed and I just pray that are lives will also be forever changed as a result.

Thanks again to our prayer warriors. We truly felt your prayers!
Sara & Tom
