Waypoints Defined

The meaningful points along life's way.

Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight. Psalm 119:35

Welcome to Cambodia

When we followed the smiling man with the  personalized welcome sign at the airport, we didn't expect to be led to a tuk-tuk. 

He proceeded to load all 250 pounds of luggage along with approximately 330 odd pounds of us ( I see you doing the math in your head!) and drove  25 minutes through the quiet midnight streets of Phnom Penh. 

With four airport stops I honestly expected a few bumps along our 25 hour trek from Uganda to Cambodia. Instead it all went smoothly. 

Even when our luggage tickets didn't have the proper numbers to transfer from Rwandan Air to Emirates in Dubai, the airline staff at the counter sent an employee to locate all four bags and tag them for us. 

The unexpected blessing of strong Wi-Fi in the Bangkok airport let us face time my mom and Rachelle  so our  short delay was even appreciated. 

Then we were bumped to first class for the last leg of our journey. Thank you,  Father! I'm feeling spoiled rotten and so grateful for your goodness and mercy that follow us every single day of our lives. 

Psalm 33:4-5 For the word of the Lord is right,and all His work is trustworthy. He loves righteousness and justice;the earth is full of the Lord’s unfailing love.
