This post is written by two weary travelers (Taletha and Ali), at close to midnight, after over 24 hours of non-stop travel and limited sleep. Please make a note of it.
WE MADE IT! PRAISE THE LORD! After taking a bus, two planes and another bus (it took us just as long to get from Bucharest to Craiova as it did from O’Hare to Vienna), we have finally arrived at the Ethos neighborhood where we are all staying (our home away from home). We are all here, minus one checked bag with some of the guys’ clothes, which will hopefully make it here tomorrow. They’ll be able to stay fresh until then though :). It was fun for those of us who have been before to reconnect with our friends, it was also a blessing for new friendships to be formed. The planes were comfortable, most of the team was able to get some good sleep, while others stayed up the entire way watching movies and playing games on the individual screens we each had.
Some things to pray for: overall health of our tired team after over 24 hours of travelling, and for our bag to arrive on time (it has Pat’s cheese in it).
Tomorrow begins the camp planning with the Open Roads leadership team, amongst . We are very excited and hope we can get enough sleep now in Azyl, the Ethos Nursing Home to have enough energy to keep up with everyone! We have settled in and are excited to see what God has in store.
Ali and Taletha (or T, or Wiz Talifa)
It was good to get the old blogging team back together. The two of us writing this wrote a similar post nearly two years ago on our first night in Honduras.
