Christi and the kids leave Boston for Kenya tonight; arrive tomorrow night

If you think of it, I’m sure Christi would appreciate a few prayers over the next two days. As you all know, it’s a long night and day flight of flying for anyone – let alone someone traveling alone with three small children. She has collected a lot of donations – including a few laptops (and some books for me, naturally), so the luggage limit is maxed out. In traveling, there are always those elements that can go either way – the transfer, kids sleep, etc. Then there is the jet lag to cope with at the other end. Fortunately, her parents are meeting her and we have a lot of great friends to help out. Still, she will also have a full plate the moment she arrives with a lot of people happy to see her back.

Tomorrow, seven of the NEGST crew here at Tyndale House leave for the British New Testament Conference (BNTC) in Durham tomorrow morning. I’ve rented a seven passenger van, so we will see how all of us do navigating around England on our own.

    Enjoy Durham, Ben. It’s a wonderful city – and one of the places I call home.

    Christi deserves some sort of award for doing all this travelling alone!

    I only wish. I’m still “stuck” up in Cambridge for another three weeks.

    Glad you made it back safely. Enjoy getting through jet lag.
