Our friend Hernan has spent the last several months in the Middle East serving with the Air Force. His wife and three kids are in our life group at church, which makes them an extension of our family. Hernan is coming home today! And we get the incredible privilege of accompanying his wife and oldest daughter to the airport to meet him. (He's surprising his two younger kids at school this afternoon). Most of the people in our life group are coming to the airport. We're taking banners and flags and balloons to surprise him and give him a true hero's welcome. I'm taking Snapper out of school for this special occasion because she has prayed faithfully for Hernan and his family while he has been gone.
I am so overwhelmed with emotion right now. I'm tracking his flight on www.flytecomm.com. The tears keep spilling over. We leave for the airport in 20 minutes and I CAN NOT WAIT!!!!!
Welcome home, dear Hernan. We are so thankful for the sacrifice you and your family have made on our behalf. We love you! Thank you, Lord, for bringing him home safe and sound.
