Things are coming together for our quick trip to Nigeria. We received our Visas from the Nigerian embassy Tuesday. With the Visas approved we were able to purchase our tickets. The tickets have been bouncing in price between $1000 and $1200 the last month or so. When I checked Tuesday afternoon they were $993 each including all taxes and fees so we booked them.
That is the lowest we have paid for tickets to Nigeria in nearly 6 years of going there. I am so thankful for the lower price. They are good flights too. We will have a short flight from Pensacola, Florida to Atlanta and then the overnight flight straight into Lagos, Nigeria. That is the flight we really like since we do not have to make a connection in Europe.
Our flight should arrive in the afternoon in Nigeria. That gives us plenty of time to collect our luggage, meet Bro. Shobanke and make the drive from Lagos to Abeokuta before it gets too late. The dedication service will be the next day, November 2nd, in the afternoon. We are excited to be a part of the special service. It is amazing what God is doing at the new church and we can hardly wait to see it for ourselves.
We plan to leave Odie in Mississippi and the bus in Pensacola, Florida. They both should be in good hands. Please continue to pray that everything will come together. We are getting pretty excited.
