Greetings from Amsterdam!

It was a good flight to Amsterdam! Not very crowded and no one sitting next to me. I could actually scrunch myself into laying down flat on the seat, but still sleep did not come easily. My bloodshot eyes make me look a little drunk.

I am going to get some breakfast and maybe try to rest a bit before my next flight. Just a few hours until I see Mercy. I cannot wait!

I am still overwhelmed at how this suddenly unfolded and the way God made a way for me to get here so quickly. I am in awe! Thank you to everyone who has continued to pray. Your love, support and encouragement has been amazing.

Thinking of you ... praying for you ...

You WILL be overwhelmed for the first day or so in Ghana. The sights ... the sounds ... the smells are all so very different. The child that you have grown to love so dearly, may not respond exactly as you imagine.

But ... trust in the Lord ... walk in His strength ... trust in His power ... and He will see you through!

I have spent almost 7 weeks in Ghana (on 2 trips, a year apart). I LOVE it! I miss the sights ... and sounds ... and smells (but not ALL of them). Ghana is a BEAUTIFUL place, and I am sure you will learn to love it, too.
