Our adventure begins!

Our trip is off to a great start! Jillian and I are traveling the the Koomar family (r-l Paul, Therese, Katie and Jennie) and the Youth Director for Bay Presbyterian Church, Morgan Smith. Our flight from Cleveland to Dulles airport was quick and painless, except for a 2 year old who screamed the whole flight!

Our flight to Frankfurt aboard a 747 was a first for Jillian – she has never seen a plane that large. It was a 7 hour flight, but the time seemed to go by quickly.  At least it went quickly for me…before leaving for the trip, my mother, Sara Wilder, insisted that I watch “Out of Africa.” I heeded her advice and watched the movie during our flight to Germany.  As always, Mother Knows Best!  What a beautiful movie – it heightened my excitement to visit the safari during the last part of our trip. Although, I doubt that we will be dining off of china and crystal at our safari!

We are all tired from the long second leg of the trip. We have a 6 hour layover here in Frankfurt before hopping on the next plane to Nairobi for an 8 hour flight. How are we spending the time during this layover, you ask? Well, ask Paul…as you can see, he has the right idea! Actually, I kind of like Therese’s idea better! 🙂

We are thankful for all of your prayers as we make our way to Kenya. God treated us to a beautiful sunset and sunrise during our flight. I know that an abundance of gifts are yet to come as we shower our Kenyan friends with the love of Christ!
