We would certainly appreciate your prayers as we travel and bring Ethan home with us on Thursday.
Here’s our schedule …
We’ll check out at early in the morning (7:00 am here), 5:00 pm, Eastern Time. We have an hour bus ride to the airport where our plane is scheduled to leave at 11:05 am (9:05 pm, Eastern Time). We should land in Tokyo a couple hours later.
After an hour-long layover in Tokyo, we’ll embark on the long 11.5 hour flight to Detroit. Then, after a less-than-2-hour layover, we’ll take a short commuter flight home to State College, where we’re expect to arrive at 3:30 pm on Thursday (Eastern Time).
Please pray for safety, of course. Also, pray especially for Ethan, that he handles the trip as well as possible. Pray that God gives us wisdom and patience. Pray for our fellow passengers and the crew, that they will be supportive and understanding. 🙂
Pray also for smooth transitions in Tokyo and Detroit and that we have no problems with customs and immigration, especially in Detroit where we have a fairly short layover. We have all of our legal paperwork for Ethan, but you never know what snags might come up in that process!
We’ll post a report on the trip sometime after we get home. Thanks for your prayers!
