And we’re off!

10 Sep

We arrived safely in Lima last night. Thanks to Vicki’s outstanding packing and a friend’s luggage scale, 5 out of 5 bags weighed in at 49 lbs at the Delta check-in counter. The digital piano sailed right through customs (unlike the Delta oversized baggage fees!). I goofed up in immigration and did not speak clearly enough, so Daniel and I received the standard 90 day tourist visas, but Vicki and the others received the maximum 180 days. If for some reason my work visa application is delayed, Daniel and I may have to make a quick trip to Chile. We are very grateful for all the Lord’s mercies, not just in travel today, but in working out the myriad details of the last several months. I am somewhat in awe, actually, of all that my dear wife has accomplished this year, and humbled by the eager help of many friends. Huge thanks to the families who joined us on Sunday for final moving and cleaning. It was an enormous practical as well as moral boost at a critical time.
