Our Team Has Safely Arrived in Budapest

Our Team Has Safely Arrived in Budapest - Grace Fox

We’re in Budapest! It’s 7:00 a.m. and I hear traffic, dogs barking, and a car siren that’s been blaring for at least twenty minutes.

We’re in Budapest! It’s 7:00 a.m. and I hear traffic, dogs barking, and a car siren that’s been blaring for at least twenty minutes. The occasional train rumbles by and a plane takes off from the international airport a few minutes away.

Little sleep and lots of mosquitoes

I had three hours of sleep last night – the brain was too busy to sleep when we finally got to our room. I batted a few mosquitoes during the night and woke up with bites on my arm. “Oh Lord, give me strength for the busy travel day ahead.”

Easy travel and fun sightseeing

The trip from Vancouver to Budapest was excellent. We flew on a 747 and got seats in the bulkhead! We landed in London for a six-hour layover. Wanting to make the most of our time in England, we jumped on a train that took us from Heathrow Airport directly to Hyde Park where we began a two-hour walkabout.

Actually, it was more like a runabout. In a short amount of time, we saw Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, and the Thames River. All this in 90 degree heat and while on sleep deprivation. ‘Way to make a memory!

Suitcases have arrived

We caught the train back to Heathrow where we caught our connecting flight to Budapest. All our suitcases – personal and camp supplies – arrived. A driver from our hotel came immediately to pick us up. Travel couldn’t have been smoother. “Thank You, God, for making this so simple!”

We’ll have a staff prayer meeting after breakfast, and then load into two vans and begin our drive to Romania at 10 a.m.
