During our eight-hour flight with fine accommodations from air Lufthansa, I couldn't help but think that more food was thrown away on that flight than what is probably available on any given day at the orphanage.
Now we await our next leg of the journey from Frankfurt. It's about 1:30 CT at home and 8:27 a.m. here. It's about a six-hour flight from Frankfurt to Abuja where we will stay all night and travel via Nigerian domestic flight on Saturday. We will arrive in Yola sometime on Saturday and then it's about a two-hour drive to Jalingo.
Sunrise over Frankfurt was beautiful. So far I've watched three movies and taken one short nap. Dottie took a nice long nap and Jim read a "National Geographic" and watched a movie.
Please keep us in your prayers as we make our way. Keep the students, teachers and leaders of the Jalingo orphanage in your prayers as we make our way to be in community with them.
