Spending the Night in Newark

Well, it has been a most unexpectedly crazy day. We got in to Newark at 1:30am EST after a 4.5 hour delay in Dallas and a surprise detour to Houston. We didn't make our connecting flight to Tel Aviv either, so we are staying the night in the Sheraton in Newark instead of in Tel Aviv. The hope is for all of us to get on the 3:50pm flight this afternoon which will put us in to Tel Aviv around 9am local time ready to hike right off the plane. The silver lining in all of this is that if that scenario pans out, we won't lose a whole lot in the way of our sight seeing schedule. I'll post another update tomorrow afternoon and let you know when we officially leave. Please pray for rest, attitudes, and that we are all able to fit on the same flight tomorrow.

In a twist of irony, Casey made it from LaGuardia to Newark just in time to be on the flight that we missed! He's our Caleb- our spy we are sending into the Promised Land to scout it out. Hopefully it doesn't take the rest of us 40 years to get there! :)

Thanks so much for praying. Everyone here is fine and accounted for. We're just wiped after a long day.


  1. Make the most of wherever the Lord has you today.

  2. We have been praying since you all left for your safety had hoped and prayed for you to meet up with Casey and you would all be together. It never entered our mind that Casey would make it to Newark before the rest of you did. Our imaginations have been running wild thinking of what Casey must be doing without you guys....... Something like... Home Alone - Lost in Isreal! We are praying for you to all be together soon and I hope by the time you read this you are. Blessings from The Harding's 1 Timothy 4: 12-16
