Arrival in Dubai - First Class!

I have arrived into Dubai and toured their incredible airport before securing a voucher for a free hotel room from Emirates Air both for tonight and for the return leg of the trip. The check-in person for Emirates in SFO was so gracious in upgrading me to Business Class for no charge which I was thrilled with. Wonderful reclining seat with all kinds of amenities and a scrumptious meal. When dinner was over I was settling in to a good movie when the 1st. class stewardess came by and asked if I wanted to move into 1st. class which of course I immediately did! 1st. class on this plane was unbelievable. I had my own private apartment with a big flat screen TV, an incredible bed and an amazing breakfast to go with my french press coffee. I watched three movies and still had enough time for reading and sleeping as it was such a long flight. It was the first flight I've had where I didn't want it to end. I could have flown around the world in that cabin. Quite a contrast to what I will be seeing in the IDP camps in Gulu in just a few days... Blessings to each of you who are praying for this trip.


  1. Wow!
    I think the Lord is just showing off. It is good for us to know your spirit is in good order. We have certainly confirmed that you are in good hands. (John 10:9-11)"God doesn't just give us life--He gives it to us "in full." What we need, He supplies to us in endless abundance. There is no limit to the spiritual renewal and peace that He brings." Assuredly you won’t find beautiful accommodations in Gulu, but as you know the beauty there will be found in the hearts of the children. Thanks for being faithful!

  2. Good luck Terry our thoughts and prayers are with you.
