Safely Arrived

Mike passed along the following report from Ethiopia:

Arrived safe and sound this afternoon. It was a pretty smooth flight although I had an exceptionally loud travelling partner beside me. Talkedly-talk-talk-talk. Nothing really to complain about though. Similar to July the wait through immigration and check-in was two plus hours. But, different from July, T and Dawit were waiting there for me. . . . We just went to the Zebra Cafe to have a meal of tibs...very good.

T is staying overnight in my room so we can be on the road by 7am to head out to Showa to meet grandpa. T made a few calls today to Robel and things seem clear for the visa. If all goes as planned we'll be back in town mid afternoon to pick up Abu. How fulfilling and wonderful this will be! Like a dream, really!

We are so excited for you all. We are praying for a very informative and blessed time with Grandpa and a safe trip home with Abu in tow.

So glad to hear of a safe arrival (and fairly uneventful travels over).

Continuing to pray for the whole Tapper clan!

I am glad he is safe...can't wait until you post that he is home and all is well. I can only imagine how much of an emotional trip this must have been. Praying hard for you all!!!
