Sarah's Coming HOME {plus a God Story}

Yippee!!! Hooray!!! Yahoo!!! We're due to leave for the airport in about 30 minutes to go pick up Sarah. She's been serving for five months as a teacher at the Kazembe Orphanage in Zambia. She left the capital city of Lusaka bound for a short intermediate stop in Dubai on Tuesday night (Zambia time) in the plane pictured.

We're dancing a jig of joy around here! You see we're especially grateful to God! When Sarah landed in Chicago after the flight from Dubai, she told us in a still-stunned voice that she'd been upgraded on the 14-hour flight to BUSINESS CLASS! Isn't God so good? Truly, this is *a God story* because Sarah realized as her departure time in Zambia drew near that she had the unmistakable symptoms of malaria. The malaria strain that mosquitoes carry in that part of Africa is treatable with medicine so she knew she was in no danger. However, she also knew she was going to be miserable with the body aches throughout her travels once she left Zambia. Sure enough, Sarah has suffered through the symptoms of malaria during international travel, but what kindness the Lord has shown her by giving her the unexpected treat of a lay-flat seat in which to sleep in on the lengthy flight. Thank you, God!
