Our flight out of Recife has been delayed by several hours, so it is uncertain whether we will actually arrive home tonight or not. We've been hanging out at the Recife airport, where we were graciously given phone cards, food vouchers and free internet access to use while we wait. The flight is currently scheduled to leave at 1:45 p.m., which would put us in Miami awfully close to the time for our connecting flight to DFW. We're praying that somehow it will work out for us to make that flight, but we are trying to prepare mentally for an overnight in Miami! American Airlines has said they will put us up in hotels if necessary, even though the delays are weather related, which means they are not obligated to do that for us.
We have two couples on the trip who have babies at home, and one member who has a wife at home, and they are especially eager to get home ASAP. So please join us in praying for an on-time connection in Miami that allows us to make our flight home tonight.
Everyone is holding up well and going with the flow. It's an incredible group we have here. Thank you so much for your prayers. We will keep you as updated as possible!
