HONG KONG!!!! Day 1 and 2 (I think...ZZZZZ)

Sunday, July 9th and Monday, July 10th, 2017

When we arrived at the airport this morning, we heard immediately that a flight to Hong Kong was cancelled.  There were only two.

I admit we were VERY relieved it wasn't ours (smile).



After a sixteen hour flight we made it to Hong Kong in semi one piece (wink).




 I say semi, because at 43 and 45 we have all kinds of aches after that long of flying.  I admit it.  I'm old (or at least my body is saying I am tonight).

Side note: The heat here is...well...like stepping out into a sweat storm.

When we arrived they actually couldn't find our reservation, but our agent got it ironed out quickly.

We are now zombified in our rooms.  I'm not sure we'd know our names if someone asked.

No judging (wink)...makeup has been sweated off and we are TIRED!!!!
(My head looks HUGE...bwhahahahahaaa!!!)


So....who are you again?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(Copy and Pasted Prayer Requests because I'm too tired to think...but KNOW we can use prayer!)

Please pray friends...
Immanent:
*That Amy and I's bodies are strong and there is no pain.  (My back is sore after the last couple days and I don't want it to "go out".  Right now I'm okay, but prayer is a beautiful thing.)  Please also pray there are NO health issues period during our trip...NONE.
*Please pray that there is NO lost luggage during any of our trip.  Though we pack a set of clothing in carryons, this is something we hope we don't have to face. (smile).
(Baggage made it the first leg! Thank you for continued prayers!)
*Please pray, if possible, that our seats (or seat mates) are not...hmmm....uncomfortable.  We are sitting in two middle (of four seats) and last time that happened my seatmate got inebriated and became a tad too friendly.  If we can get better seats...AWESOME! :-) (Not necessary, but awesome!)
*Please pray we can sleep on the flight (without snoring...lol...preferably...I have allergies hitting me right now.)
*Please pray there are no hiccups, paperwork or otherwise during this trip.
*Please pray for our kids and families hearts (ours too) and safety.  This is the hard part, leaving them.  Peace that passes understanding is a good thing.

PLEASE PRAY...


1. THAT GOD IS GLORIFIED IN EVERY STEP OF THIS ADOPTION (MOST IMPORTANT TODAY AND EVERY DAY).

2.  I feel a deep need to have everyone join us in prayer for the attachment of our girls.  Please pray they have NO attachment issues and attach to us as a family very quickly.  We pray that GRACE and HOPE have NO issues with attachment...NONE (that God prepares them as well).

3.  We ask for prayers also that Grace and Hope are good sleepers.  I know that may sound trivial, but knowing what can happen (we've had it both ways) we know if they can sleep (both in country and at home), transition will go much smoother.

. 4. For Grace and Hope, that they are healthy, loved on, and protected. Please pray that they dream of us and attach quicker than ANYONE could imagine.

5. PLEASE pray protection against ALL of satan's schemes.  He's been messing with our family and with Amy and her family.  PLEASE pray a strong concrete, cement, gold, silver (smile) wall between our lives and his schemes.

6.  That we have "more than enough" for this trip.  Please pray all trip plans to land within our budget.  GOD IS GOOD! We have confidence our trip will, but prayers do NOT hurt!

7. Please pray for Thomas and I's anxiety/stress.  Life is keeping us going a million miles an hour and peace that passes understanding would be very very welcome!  (Prayers for physical strength as well for both of us)

8. PLEASE PRAY THERE ARE NO PAPERWORK ISSUES IN COUNTRY AND EVERYTHING GOES FLAWLESSLY.  This is my current worry...pffttt.

9. That my traveling companion (Amy) and I stay well (completely) within country and are safe....not even a nauseous stomach which commonly happens at least once.

 10. That God uses us/speaks through us while we are there, see what we need to see and doing what we need to do.

11. That our families are safe while we are apart and that it is a peaceful (and safe) time for them.

12. For Timothy's complete healing...and that he has walking and running in his future (smile).  That his pain is minimal

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
