Hello friends . . . grace and peace,
We leave tomorrow. A car/van ride to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport for a 3:47 pm flight to JFK in New York. Then, on to Paris where we have a 6-hour layover before our flight to Amman, Jordan. We will arrive in Jordan at 9 pm local time on Thursday, October 29, roughly 30 hours after we depart our homes and families.
Please, obviously, continue your prayers for us, for our last minute packing, for our families as they help/watch us pack, and for our hosts, Fr. Kamal Farah and Bishara Khoury. Bishara will be meeting us in Amman. We will rendezvous with Fr. Kamal in Jerusalem on Sunday, November 1.
You can reach us by commenting here on the blog or by emailing, tweeting, facebooking, snapchatting, instagraming, etc. Most of us will have the data shut off on our phones but there’s lots of wifi spots so we’ll easily be able to remain in contact. We look forward to hearing from you all…
“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem…” – Psalm 122:6
