As many of you know, the last time we were in the States was in 2018 on the heels of civil unrest in Nicaragua. We had planned to travel in 2020, but most flights in and out of Managua were cancelled in March of last year. Many airlines still have not resumed flights to Managua. However, our family really needs a break and a chance to reconnect with family, friends and churches.
After considering all of our options, the most convenient and cost-effective way is for us to drive to Costa Rica and fly from Liberia to Grand Rapids. We plan to embark on our two-day journey on June 19 (the day after graduation) and arrive at midnight on June 20. During our short time in the States this summer, we plan to spend time in New York and Michigan. If you would like to connect with us, please reach out to us.
There are still a number of things that could go wrong in our travels. Please pray that the border between Nicaragua and Costa Rica will remain open, that we will receive negative Covid tests, and that there will not be any other complications.
