I Know He's an On-time God, but This is Ridiculous!

We were supposed to get a call at 3.
At 3:10 we started calling around to everyone we needed.
At 3:30 we were in utter confusion.  At risk of no Visa and not going to be able to change our tickets.

I posted on Facebook and Twitter:

I cannot begin to describe the spiritual attack that is happening right now. Pray against confusion, chaos. Pray for a car. Pray for a call.

You all must have started praying!

At 3:45, a car and driver loaned to us by another person at the apartment.
At 4:00 p.m., a call from the Embassy while stuck in traffic... "Your Visa is printing now."
I hop on a boda boda (motorcycle taxi) and head to the Airline office to get Moses ticket printed.
Janelle stays in the car heading to the Embassy.
Janelle gets to the Embassy at 4:30 (15 minutes before close) and picks up Visa.
After a credit card rejection, a broken ticket printer, and an amazingly kind KLM and Kenya Airways agents assistance, I get Moses' airline tickets 5 minutes before office close.

WE ARE ALL HEADING TO THE AIRPORT IN ONE HOUR!

Thank you to all who are praying.  God hears and answers prayer.  He fights for us.


Pray for our travel home.  Some specifics:
  • Immigration from Uganda.  Lot's of paperwork to be shown and cleared.
  • Smooth flights and connections.
  • Rest for the kids during the flights.
  • Immigration & Customs in the U.S.  We've been asked to leave 2 hrs after arrival for an interview at immigration.
Lord willing, we land in Detroit at 12:50 and will be home in Nappanee Friday evening!

Sally and I are sitting here, with goosebumps and tears...God is good. You have been on our hearts and in our prayers all morning long. We will continue to pray for "smooth sailing" the rest of the way. Cannot wait to see everyone and meet Moses!
Love you guys!!
Dawn
P.S.
Tell your mom, we are still getting our work done even though are a bit distracted today :)

I can personally attest to the power of prayer & am so excited when I learn of that power elsewhere! We have been praying & will continue to pray. Can't wait to see the family!

I was checking in on your blog and it had the twitter update about the spiritual attack and it was posted 24 seconds prior. I committed time to praying right then and there, and praise God for answered prayer!!!!!!!!! Our God is greater :) Praying for sweet travels home.
