We saw Justin off after our hugs and watched him disappear behind the doors of the customs. He's gone.
After getting home, Alysa and I were sitting, discussing a number of things, one of which was Justin. "We didn't feed him supper", "They wont be feeding him on the plain", "I hope he gets something at one of his layovers", "He should make his next flight I hope". these and a few other thoughts. It wasn't but 5 or 10 minutes went by and i got an email from someone i did not know and wow what a blessing as it cleared up all our concerns.
We found your son at the airport and were on the same flight into Seattle with him we had the pleasure of feeding him and visiting with him. We wanted to let you know the first leg of his trip is done and he is now waiting at the gate for his flight to New York. From one missionary mom to another what a great young man he is and what a great missionary he is going to make. We are grateful for the time we were able to spend with him. We still have an hour before our plane leaves and will continue to visit with your son until we have to depart. We have learned a little about your family and would love to follow his mission if you are willing to share. Janice Kimball
