Is it still day 1?


They did amazing, better than the adults for sure. :)

Check out the steam around the headlights, its only like 112 degrees here!


We are here in Dubai, well at least all 10 people, 15 carry-ons and 13 bags!  Yes, you can do the math -- we are missing 7 of our bags.  Kristin has no clothes, Abe has nothing and we are missing several of our humanitarian aid bags.  Please pray that the airlines would find them and get them to us tomorrow. :)  

The kids were great on the 15 hour flight, rockstars actually!  We are exhausted, but happy to be well on our way to Abe.  We will spend the day in Dubai tomorrow and head to Ethiopia on Sunday.

We are encouraged by each of you!  Thanks again for partnering in this adventure with us.
