Ok….first I would like to say happy 4th of July. I am missing our neighborhood party and that just feels a little weird. I may have to listen to my Ipod today to our 4th of July music mix just to celebrate in my own way.
Second, I am really tired. We made it into Lima at midnight and checked into the hotel around 1 am, and we have to check out at 7 am this morning, so I have a lot of fog surrounding my head. However, I would like to thank Starbucks for creating instant ice coffee so I can start my day with my caffeine boost that allows me to be the leader I need to be.
Third, I am praising God our entire group made it and we are here. We had a little issue in Houston and the airline had two of our members on stand by. They booth had assigned seats when the tickets were booked, but when their tickets were printed, the seats were gone. Just so you know, if you ever fly and see that you don’t have a seat assignment this means they over sold the flight and some million mile frequent flyer has the seat that you were suppose to sit in. Luckily they were able to get on because two wonderful people gave their seats up.
Finally, today we will travel eight hours up over the Andes Mountains. We will be going up to around 11,000 feet or more as we travel through roads that our Peru staffed described as “snake like,” so I expect an exciting drive.
So blog friends, I will post when I can.
And the shoes that you all helped Isabel collect for kids are with me and heading for delivery. Yippee.
Be blessed my friends and Happy 4th of July.
