Mary and I are in Jacksonville, North Carolina. We have been here since
Tuesday night. Matthew called us around 2:00 pm NC time yesterday
afternoon! He was in Kuwait at the time. I guess he had to ride in a
convoy from Baghdad to Kuwait. At that time, he had several hours to
wait before boarding a plane for Germany then home.
It is now about 12:30 pm here, and he is supposed to touch down here
around 1:00 pm. Then it takes about one hour for them to unload, check
in, and ride on busses to the base. We will be going over to the base
in about one hour.
Thanks to all of you who have kept Matthew in prayer the past seven
