Flight Details and such

Well, since the last post I also got the Typhoid shot, and hopefully am done with shots for a while, just malaria medicine yet to take. I also got a list of the flights I'll be taking for the trip except the final flight from Maine to Green Bay in May when I go back to school. I'll be flying out of Green Bay January 30th at 6am and flying to Chicago. After a 5 hour layover there I'll fly out of Chicago stop in Tokyo to refuel then make it to Bangkok where I'll get in about 11:45pm on Sunday, spend about 9 hours there then fly to Calcutta the next morning where I'll spend most of the late morning/early afternoon in that airport, then get a connecting flight to Silchar which is my actual destination.

I also found out that since our trip is over April 18th, I'll be spending about 3 weeks in Maine working on follow-up to the projects with the Champeons. So, for right now, the focus is more on packing and getting visa applications taken care of, my visa app. for India has already been sent in, but the one for Myanmar is about to get sent this upcoming week I believe. The day is quickly approaching, the countdown is currently 27 days, 14 hrs, 30 mins, 30 secs til takeoff. :) And the seconds keep ticking away. That's where things stand, I appreciate all prayer on this because I know that this is something God is going to do through me with His strength, I definitely can't do this on my own. :) Til the next update--grace and peace.

  2. well, to be quite honest... :) I don't know exactly. I will probably be finishing projects I start overseas, I know since I last posted I found out there will be a few days in Bangkok on the way home designated to writing reports and doing a lot of debriefing with the team to see what worked, what didn't, what could be better, etc. So, I'm not sure what all we'll work on in Maine, but I'll be sure to post once I find out. Good question! :)

  4. I'm really not sure, but I'm hoping for at least once a week maybe? That might be optimistic, really not sure, but I will hopefully get some kind of schedule going for it so people know what to pray for and what God's doing.
