Today marks two weeks since I landed in Mongolia! I have already experienced the Lord's working in such mighty, specific ways. I'll look forward to sharing more in the future. But for now, here is a quick glimpse of my international flight and new surroundings:
Preparing to board my international flight.
I even got to watch them load the luggage!
Lunch is served!
A delicious pasta salad, chicken & pepper stir-fry, wheat roll & cheesecake,
served with water, tea, coffee or your choice of wine.
I was satisfied with the water & tea.
It far exceeded my expectations for plane food!
After 14 hours of flying at 40,000 ft, it was good to see land once again!
My view from the plane, just moments before we landed in Seoul, South Korea.
It was a short flight to Mongolia, and after a good night's sleep
we were ready to head for "home".
Welcome to the local tire shop!
On our way to the village we had 3 flat tires (which is not at all surprising once you see the roads!).
It ended up being a beautiful day to travel. We got to see miles of beautiful countryside
scattered with winter-ready yurts, animal herds & trails.
Sheep, goats, cattle, horses, camels & even field mice
roam the country side in herds (packs). Everyone is preparing for winter.
After 14 hours in a van... and many new Mongolian experiences...
finally... we are a street away from home!
Yes, the only source of heat in my cozy cabin!
There is nothing like a warm fire after tramping in the cold outdoors.
(Its currently 9 degrees f. Brrr!)
Thank you so much for all your prayers on my behalf!
The coming weeks contain a promise of lots of interaction with the dear Mongolian people...
meeting neighbors, having visitors, learning, laughing & growing!
Until next time...
Until next time...
"Let Your work appear to Your servants, and Your glory to Your children.
And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us,
and establish the work of our hands for us; yes, establish the work of our hands!"
