Miami Airport

We have made it to Miami and met with the rest of our team. It's the first time we have met any of them.
 I will introduce them all to you tomorrow. It's a small team and we will be partnering with the Bolivian physicians and missionaries. You always see strange things in the airport in Miami, just imagine how much stranger things are in the Miami International Airport on Halloween!

On our way to Bolivia

And the grand adventure has begun!! God is so good. Arrived at the airport prepared to be told that our bags were overweight. Our prayers were answered, each bag squeaked by at 48.5 pounds! Even better than that, we didn't get charged to the additional checked bags.  Thank you Lord. Forgive us for even worrying about it. You always provide for your children.

The Lord has seen fit to provide us with 32,000 vitamins  through your generous donations!  Our living room is covered with Children's Vitamins, Prenatal Vitamins, and Adult Vitamins with Iron. Please pray that they all make it into the country.  We are told that 70 percent of the population there are anemic.  We are told that there will be some challenges getting through customs. What we know is that we serve a God that is greater than any immigration officer that we might encounter. We know that we represent GBC and that they are praying for us (and 32,000 vitamins) to make there intact.  Back to packing for now! Much love!
