Please pray for Dillon and his wife, Jamie. Specifically, ask the Lord to give them patience, kindness, and gentleness as they endure the long journey with two wee boys.
Please pray for Aidan (age 5) and Cullen (age 3). Especially, pray that they will be able to sleep (for a long, long time) on the flight from Auckland to LA.
Please ask God to place polite people at key points of the Thornton’s journey, people who will help them get six checked bags, four carry-on bags, and two children through the numerous check points and across the various airports.
Please pray that the Thornton family will arrive safely in Birmingham, with suitcases and sanity intact.
