In a few hours (1:30 PM Feb. 6 our time, wee morning hours Feb. 6 for most of you) we’ll be starting the very long journey from Asia Pacific all the way to San Antonio, Texas. Please pray for the Lord’s protection and strength for us on this long trip. Pray that we’ll make all our connections, and that Areli and Galilee will be able to sit still for the long flights.
We came out of the tribe 4 days ago. It was a very wet trip downriver in the rain for 3 hours, and then an hour-long flight (not wet, thankfully!) on out to the coast. That day DJ was feeling tired and achy but wasn’t sure if he was coming coming down with something or just tired. By the next morning he was showing full-blown malaria symptoms, so he took a malaria treatment. Unfortunately the first treatment didn’t work, so he was very sick by the time the second treatment finally started working. He doesn’t have fever anymore now, but he’s still very weak and having a hard time getting back to eating. Please pray for him especially since he has to make this trip not feeling very well. Pray that the malaria will really be gone, and that he’ll regain his strength quickly.
Thanks so much for praying! The next time you hear from us, we’ll be back on your side of the world. We’re so excited!
