We sensed the Lord’s green light for our return to Germany when we found award tickets for February 28, our preferred departure date. We knew from past experiences that we could expect blocks and hinderances in the days before leaving Phoenix.
Looking back over the last two months, we marvel at God’s mercies and the effects of your prayers in overcoming each obstacle:
- Our yard: An infestation of gofers.
- Our health: A routine treatment for skin cancer took a more serious turn when the strong antibiotic prescribed by the skin doctor reacted adversely with the blood thinner George takes for his artificial heart valve.
- Hanna’s Green card: Five days before our flight we discovered Hanna’s Green Card (permission to reside in the US) had expired—our mistake.
As we sank down into our seats on the British Airways flight to London we knew God had come through again!
- We caught an infection on the flight and were sick for some days. We are still weak, and re-entry has been slow.
