We got Travel Approval yesterday and, after receiving confirmation of a Consulate Appointment in China, booked our flights today! I will get to meet Rebecca on June 11th and Peter on June 15th!
It was a bit of an ordeal booking the flights to China. We tried doing it online, but nothing would go through. We tried to call the Chinese airline directly, but they could not book over the phone. We finally ended up working with a Chinese travel agency and that went pretty well. There was a lot of back and forth (we couldn’t travel through Canada, we had to have long lay-overs, etc.), but it’s all booked!
The amazing part is that we will be on U.S. soil only days before Peter turns 14! It is so awesome how God worked out all the timing.
Please be praying for safe travels. Also, we are still thousands of dollars short of our goal, so please continue to give or purchase shirts (www.christianwarriorwear.com). Everything helps!
