Safe Arrival in Johannesburg South Africa

Updated at bottom of post + a few photos

Hey everyone! Just wanted to try to keep you in the loop on our trip to Musele Village in Zambia with World Village!  This first blog will be a little short but I just wanted to let yall know we have made it this far with no trouble... After 28 hours travel time including a 4 hour layover in Detroit and another 4 hrs in Amsterdam we are in Johannesburg South Africa. We are spending the night here and flying out at 10:50am for Zambia in the morning. I don't know if I will have internet on a lot of the trip but I will do my best to blog.  Keep us in your prayers please!  We are coming home the 20th...
Love and Blessings!

I received a brief message from Lily today.......they have arrived safely in Zambia.  She said they haven't had a chance to see very much yet and they are very tired.  They will be flying to the village of Musele tomorrow and will be meeting and spending time with their sponsored children.  They will be "camping out" for the next three days.  Lily says thank you for praying and please don't stop now.
