One of the most important things we can do as parents is to teach our kids. They learn far more through their observations of us over the words that we say. But even better, is when they get to participate WITH us.
PDX to SFO 2 hours
SFO to Singapore 17.5 hours
SIN to Colombo, Sri Lanka 4 hours
That is 23.5 hours of flight time. Add at least another 9-10 hours of airport waiting, runway sitting and flight delays and we are looking at a full travel schedule just to get to the other side of the world. And with a 13.5 hour time zone difference, the journey is only half of the fun.
Would you pray for Andie, who is not a huge fan of flying? Specifically, that God will open her eyes to see the world in a new way. That the two of us will bond with memories that we will never forget. And that she will have deeper understanding of who God is and who He created her to be. It may seem like a lot for a 13 year old volleyball player, I but I know she can handle it.
