Our flight out of Omaha was delayed, so we had to make a run for it in Atlanta. Davi and Gina ran ahead to try to get the Rome flight held a couple minutes while David waited for the carry-ons that were stowed below and then made the run himself. The "gate-keeper" kept threatening to close the gate, and finally Davi spotted David running down the hallway.
We've enjoyed Rome--got to see some amazing sights. Davi got sick the second morning and tossed her cookies a few times. She recovered by early afternoon and did great doing some sight-seeing. We returned to our hotel and discovered something very valuable to Davi, something she has kept with her since she was a baby, was snatched up with the sheets and taken out to a laundry service. It has not been recovered yet, but we're still praying.
We're up until our flight leaves at 1:15 tonight. We had to check out of the hotel at noon, did a little more sight-seeing, then came back to wait out the time in the hotel lobby until our flight.
We see our girls in two days! Crazy.
Ciao until Ethiopia!

We are so glad you made your flight to Rome. CRAZY! We will be praying that Davi's special thing is found--Faith and Quinn can relate.
We just started reading Crazy Love. Thanks for the recommendation. Can't wait to see what God does in our lives.
Give all your girls a big hug from us! The Powers

We've been praying like crazy for you guys, so I was so happy when I saw that you had posted. I hope Davi was able to retrieve her special item as I know she had to be totally distraught. Well, in a matter of hours, you meet your girls - praise Jesus! I hope you are able to post again soon as I know that we are all longing to hear about the treasured Metcha Day!

Praying for you!
Erica R. (and Jason and Ashton)
