missing luggage…again!?

Leaving Grootfontein behind us we set off for Rundu. Between here and there, there’s a police control post, 250 kilometres of pavement, and lots of country air. Lord willing we will arrive there on Friday night.

We would all appreciate it if you could keep the health of the team, and the safe arrival of Drew and his luggage in your thoughts and prayers. Once again, luggage difficulties perplex us; Drew’s bags will be arriving separately (hopefully!!) as they missed his connecting flight. We are anxious to see Drew in good health, and the prospect of new shoes and fresh clothing ……….aaaahh.

    I sincerely hope that the luggage will arrive. Johannesburg is notorious for lost luggage as we experienced when we travelled to Sydney for the Olympics. Several items had been removed from a case or two and when we travelled to Edmonton for the World Champs in 2001 our President had to make do with one suit until the day before we left when his cases eventually arrived. Good luck with the long haul to Rundu.

    We hope you and Reuben are feeling better. The whole team is in our daily prayers and we are really enjoying keeping up with your efforts through the blog.
    We’ll also be praying that Drew’s luggage arrives safely – especially since it contain gear for the runners.
    You are doing a fabulous job…keep it up! Hi from all the gang at Santa Anita.

    Hey Patrick,
    I announced your journey to the congregation in Lions Head. Gave out the website as well.
    Tell those police you have a friend in the business in Ontario. On second thought, not sure that will help or hinder, maybe just smile and answer their questions.
    Good job each one of you and continue to press on.
