Brian left this morning at 6:30am for DRC. He flew from here to Atlanta and at about 2:30 left Atlanta for Johannesburg. He said he thought he would be able to call me from there at about 9:00am my time. He'll stay overnight in J-burg and then the next morning fly into Kinshasa. Haven will be waiting there for him at the Methodist Church compound.
As some of you probably would guess, I am a wreck. I have been crying on and off all day long. I know that Brian has the much harder part of this whole experience, but I am ridiculously dependent on my husband and I miss him so much.
Grace had a good and uneventful day with Brian's parents (they are staying here with me until he returns) but she has been a holy terror since I got home from work. I think she is starting to be really effected by her schedule being so out of whack the last few days. I am a little worried about how things are going to go at bedtime tonight. The grandfolks just took her for a walk around the block. Hopefully that will wear her out a bit.
Well, signing off for now. I will post as soon as I have any new news!
