We’re on the way!

We’re at the hotel in Leduc, just a few minutes from the airport.  We have a wake up call scheduled for 5:00 o’clock tomorrow morning and catch the airport shuttle at 5:55.  Our plane leaves at 8:15.  We have a 3 hour stopover in Vancouver where oldest son, Matt, and his wife, Robin, who live near the airport will meet us.  Our plane for Japan departs at noon and flies nonstop to Tokyo Narita, a ten and a half hour flight.

Today was a day of good byes.  We woke up in the lap of luxury this morning, having spent the last two nights in a king size bed at a Sedgewick bed and breakfast owned by church friends, Ken and Doris.  We returned to the now almost bare house to pack up the last few items then drove out to the farm of dear friends, Louis and Doris, where our vehicle will be stored for the next year.  After a delicious lunch and a visit there, Louis drove us back to town.  Minutes later, special friends, Deborah and Derek picked us up for the drive to the city.  There we were met by youngest son, Nathan, and the five of us enjoyed dinner together.  Now all the good byes have been said and we’re on our way!  How exciting!  I hope we can sleep tonight as tomorrow will be a very long day!

    The lord bless you and keep you, the lord make his face to shine upon you, the Lord turn his countenance upon you and grant you peace.

    Fair winds and following seas, friends!
