God Speed, Sam
After 15 glorious days with Gretchen and Jasper in Anchorage, Sam boarded an Alaskan Airlines flight on Saturday night back to Iraq. Anchorage, Chicago, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Europe ??, Kuwait, Baghdad, FOB Iskan. Gretchen confirmed his flight arrived in Chicago Sunday morning on time, after that we don't know.
Through our sadness and despair the Lord gives us hope and strength through the resurrection of his son Jesus Christ. He also delivered a few diversions. The girls were home for the Easter weekend, which was wonderful because we got to talk to Sam Saturday evening on the speaker phone before he left for the airport. Saturday night we also had a visit from Kevin Shon, and a wonderful Easter Sunday spend with the Breens. Just the friends we needed to have around us for support.
