They have had wi-fi access for all of their trip so far, so it has been easy to receive updates. Micah has posted a few videos on his facebook page, and for the most part they are fun and even humorous. I have loved this.
Each team member took 2 suitcases packed with supplies for Vacation Bible School as well as gifts for friends and church members. They packed all their personal belongings into carry-ons. Unfortunately, they were separated from all 10 suitcases.
Today is Micah's 18th birthday. Our friends in Horol planned a special birthday surprise for Micah and I am oh so grateful! With the wonder of technology, this is what I woke up to:
Here are some pictures Mitch sent too:
A few minutes later he sent the below picture and said, "Does he look any different as an adult? He is 18 now." ^^
Practicing the birthday song before waking Micah up (in the video above)
He sent me a few pictures of the beautiful countryside.
Today Micah posted quite the grown-up video update, complete with prayer requests.

I would add Barb's prayer request that they would be reunited with their luggage by Monday (the first day of VBS).
On the home front I'm beat up with a cold. I knew that I would be tired because Obi, Mercy, and Genna all wake up at night. I just didn't expect to be tired AND sick. I was able to get to the store today and restock my medicine cabinet. Whew!
