3...2...1, LIFT-OFF!


I just now happened to stop by our house to pick up some tools for another jobsite. It was a last minute thing that I decided to do. Thank you, Lord, for letting me be so easily side-trackable.

There was a home phone message that I checked when I arrived that mentioned that Jenny and the kids were ON THEIR WAY TO NEW YORK ! My head is sort of spinning now.

Now I'm scrambling to get their flights in the US arranged.

Pray for flight availability for them on Northwest Airlines, and that the airline medical requirements would all be resolved quickly so that they may immediately get on a flight.
Pray that they will have a very direct route to Billings, MT.
Pray that Katie and Christopher hold up well, and, especially, that Katie will not need any special medical attention in flight.

Katie is doing very well. Thank you for your prayers. The oxygen support availability is all precautionary.

The good news is they have left the ground!

YEAAHHH! Lacey just called me with the news! Praise the LORD, He is so good! I will be praying non-stop today for the remaining flights and Katie's health. Looks like dinner at our house might have to be postponed to include all 7 of you!

Love, Lana

P.S. Love the Rocky theme!

Praise God!!!!!! My heart is jumping with joy for you all. In the last minute when things seem like there is no way He makes a way. My prayers will be non stop for you today.

Todd, sometimes delays are a good thing. Hope your day goes well, you get flights (non-stop)and you can actually get something done at work on top of everything else. Thanks for taking the time to keep us all updated. I can only imagine how your feeling knowing that you wil have your sweet Jenny home safe and sound along with those two precious babies. Blessings to all of you.

Alright, I'm jealous that all of your Billings friends are able to welcome you home, Jenny, and see your precious babies.

After you get "settled" and have time please post photos...better yet video!

I'm grinning ear to ear for all of you!!!!
