Greg 'n Keetha Stuff

OK, let's be honest. This is really KEETHA stuff. Sometimes I write about Greg - - - but he has never in his life made one single post of his own. He has occasionally made a comment or two. So - - - come on in and visit with me, Keetha, for a while. I'd love it if you left your foot prints. (Interpretation: COMMENT PLEASE ;-)

They're Off and Running - - -

I think!

Kyle and the other members of his class are off and on their way to their senior missions trip. Their destination is Ecuador.

I have no idea exactly where they are tonight, and there's a story to go with that!!!

We were scheduled to have a chapel today at 1:30 p.m. to commission them, pray for them, and then send them off to the airport in time to catch a flight tonight at 8:00 p.m.

Just before 1 p.m., they were called to the airport to try to make a 3:30 p.m. flight because the evening ones were being canceled due to a severe storm front that was predicted to pass through.

Chapel was canceled. Parents, pastors, students and teachers gathered in the parking lot to offer a brief prayer, share parting words, release helium balloons, and give farewell hugs. By 1:30 our kids were on their way.

Grapevine has it that they missed the 3:30 flight, but were going to be sent to "somewhere" before the storm hit. They will spend the night in "somewhere" before continuing on to their final destination tomorrow. I hope "somewhere" has lots of beds ;-)

What stories they will have to tell when they return!!!!

As my grapevine gives up more information I'll keep you posted.

PLEASE call me as soon as you know something. You know how I get when my family members are up in the air. LOL

If my phone is off, just leave a voice mail, please.

I'm sure no news is good news.

Kyle didn't take his cell phone - - - I don't know how soon I'll hear something. Ecuador is farther away and not a US territory, so I don't know how often we'll hear from them.

Keaton's mom is with them plus three other sponsors.

I'm not one bit worried about them.

Ah, youth. They're probably sleeping on the floor in an airport someplace. I trust they'll have a great trip.

All of our family members who were on missions trips have returned. I still don't have any stories - waiting for recovery from jet lag, etc.

LOL Mom I don't think Diana can do anything about a plane crashing. That's what always worries me when you people go flying around the universe.
