We have arrived at our destination!! We just wanted to post a quick note that we are here and to thank you so much for all your prayers. Our travel went really smoothly and all our luggage arrived when we did. Colleen and Rana picked us up from the airport and took us to our hotel to freshen up a bit from the 17 hours of travel. The hotel is great and we got to see a traditional Muslim wedding party celebration in our hotel lobby. We'll have pics tomorrow, but it was a fun way to get started. We went to a local restaurant for a great Middle Eastern meal. We tried lots of things and I don't think anyone will be losing any weight on this trip. =)
Thanks again for all the prayers. We feel them and are super excited to be here. Our internet connection looks like it will be stable, so we should be able to post daily.
Ahlan wa Sahlan! (This means "Welcome!" in Arabic)
