She Sallies Forth!!

Kathleen's final day in Salt Lake City didn't go quite as planned.  We were planning on a leisurely day sleeping in, breakfast, packing, final calls to family and heading to the airport at the civilized hour of 3:00 pm.  This was not to be.  On Friday, at 6:30 pm, we got a call from Brother Love at the Church travel desk.  Bob Sykes refers to this (for you Neil Diamond fans) as Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show.  Air France pilots are on strike.  There was a scramble to get everyone on a flight that wouldn't leave anyone stranded in Paris.  To make a long story short, we were up half the night packing, making a last minute trip to the bank to get foreign currency, and getting to the airport at 10:00 am!  5 hours earlier than planned.  She's safely on the road (or in the air) and will spend the next 3 hours in Dallas before flying on to London Heathrow and then to Madrid.  A few tears were shed, but we know she is safely in God's hands.  See you in March 2016.

  1. We will miss Kathleen. She is such a bright light! The people of Madrid are lucky to be getting her. We'll follow along on her journey and keep her in our prayers.
