We're all here safely in Ukraine!

Written by Greg

We're here in Kyiv now. Mom and the girls (and Paul) are in one 2 room apartment and Dad, Steven and I are in another. We're in different buildings but we're really close to each other and it's only 'til we find an apartment for all of us.

The flights were not fun at all but not as bad as I thought they would be. There were two times that someone wasn't crying... other then that though someone was crying the whole time. Especially with the pressure changes because the little ones can't have gum and wouldn't drink or eat when their ears hurt. They also didn't have much to eat until last night. (It's 10:00 am here on Wednesday now.) The airline people were all very helpful and we had no trouble in any of the airports. (Except the TSA people didn't like me taking video of the airport... I got searched... with the wand and by hand... I think it's called a frisk or something... anyway, that was fun. Not.) I did find a lot of change in various pockets though. We got to go straight through security in front of everyone else. We also boarded the planes before anyone else. In Frankfurt the Luftansa Lady actually carried Grace for us while leading us to the gate for the flight to Kyiv. All in all it wasn't as bad as I had imagined but it was no fun. One thing was clear: God had prepared a way for us. It could have been much, much worse. Continue reading the rest of this post...

Just arrived safely in Frankfurt Germany!

This is just a quick note to let all of you know that we've arrived safely here in Frankfurt Germany. The local time is about 7:30am and our flight to Kyiv Ukraine is on scheduled to depart in about an hour and a half.

The flight wasn't too bad, we took some pictures and I shot some video in the airport that we'll share with you in the future. All in all the flight wasn't as bad as I expected. The airline employees were all very helpful and the other passengers where understanding. :c)

It's clear that God has "prepared a way" for us as he says in the Bible... quite frankly I'm surprised at how smoothly this whole trip has gone. I am sure that all your prayers are being heard and I'd ask that you all continue to pray for us as we continue on this last leg of our journey to Ukraine.

Thank you all for your prayers and support!!!!!
