Arrived in Nigeria & a Big Thank You

Knowing how many people are praying for us has made the journey thus far a joy.

We wanted to let you all know that we’ve arrived safe and sound in Lagos, Nigeria! It took a little while to get out of the airport last night, but we made it to our apartment and slept very well! Today we are in the process of unpacking. We brought along some American mac & cheese (including the gluten-free/dairy free kind) so we would have something to eat today before we go grocery shopping tomorrow. The power did go out once already, but it came back on after not too long.

We are meeting with officials tomorrow and our hope is to meet Olivia for the first time! If we don’t meet her tomorrow it will likely be Tuesday. We are very excited!

As we settle in to our apartment in Nigeria, we wanted to post and say thank you for all your prayers, love, support. We have been overwhelmed with love over the past few days from our family, our church family, and friends. Knowing how many people are praying for us has made the journey a joy! We know that God is the good Father who loves to give his children good things, and we are trusting in this truth no matter what lies ahead.

Thanks again for everything!

Markus & Sarah
