After about 9 1/2 hours of flying time Melissa arrived in London Heathrow and low and behold we found out that we’re able to text message back and forth! Of course this made Kevin and I very happy to know she landed safely after the first leg of her trip. Then shortly afterward Melissa sent a picture to us! Eureka, a Starbucks in the Heathrow airport! God was so sweet to let her have her last little bit of yumminess before she graduates to “Bush Tea”!!
She’s in the air right now on her way to Dar Es Salaam. We aren’t sure if she’ll be able to text from there, but who knows? Once she arrives in Dar Es Salaam she will change planes again and get on a Precision Air plane to fly the rest of the way into Kigoma, Tanzania. From what we understand it can probably be equivalent to an “E Ticket” ride at Disneyland…all you old timers will understand. And she was advised that when she was offered a snack…she might want to politely say, “No thank you.” But, he wouldn’t tell her what the snack was, just that he’s had it and his wife never has!! Hmmmmm, wonder what it is?
