After at least a twenty-six hour long journey, out teammates are beginning to arrive at the new airport in New Delhi. Shawn, Makson and Shirvish from Mid-India Christian Missions were waiting to greet our team. Tom, DJ, Elizabeth and Angie arrived a little after 11:15PM, followed by Elizabeth (from Maryland) and Dr. Wani and Jamie (from Houston). Unfortunately, our teammate Vanessa ran into delays which caused her to miss her Newark to Delhi connection. We hear she has been a trooper and will arrive tomorrow evening. The Butler family ran into some delays as well which caused them to arrive at 1:30AM.
Tom ran back to the airport to receive them. It’s 3:45AM and I just heard some luggage being rolled down the hallway. It sounds like they are here – so it’s time to go to bed! Tomorrow, l we get started early – at NOON! We’ll give our team some time to catch their breath, have breakfast and then finish off the day with some amazing New Delhi sight-seeing! Let’s pray for journey mercies for Vanessa who still has a long journey ahead of her tomorrow.
