Well, today’s the day!
At 1 pm, all but 2 of the team (that would be Shelbie and Michaela) will gather behind Nell Sunday residence hall on the BJU campus to load our luggage, pray for grace, and hit the highway toward Atlanta airport. I expect to arrive ATL by 5 pm–barring major traffic issues–where we’ll check in and go through security before joining the 2 team members who are flying into ATL separately.
We plan to depart ATL around 7.45p on Qatar flight 756 to Doha. That’ll be an all-nighter. Just over an hour transfer time in Doha, so pray for an on-time arrival there.
My plan is to post each day’s journal entry here on the blog either at the end of the day or first thing the next morning. (Keep in mind that there’s a 7-hour time difference between EDT and Tanzania.) But internet access can be unreliable, especially when we’re in transit, so #freakoutthounot if you don’t hear from us right on schedule. If there’s a serious situation, we’ll contact the parents by text or email–so no news is good news. 🙂
