DHL 8829298273

The first box in our air shipment arrived at the DHL office yesterday! It took a lot of restraint not to tear off the shredded plastic, slip a blade through the tightly wrapped tape, lift open the cardboard flaps, and unpack the box’s contents right there in the back of Chris’s vehicle.


With overwhelming anticipation, we gathered around the large box and silently speculated its contents. Chris hoped that his coffee maker was carefully packed inside the box. Kylee hoped to pull her fuzzy, purple blanket out of the box. Ally hoped to see her bungee chair somewhere in the box. And I hoped the microwave was in the box. In less than thirty seconds, the box’s contents were revealed, and the excitement vanished from all of our faces.

It wasn’t Chris’s coffee pot, Kylee’s blanket, Ally’s chair, or the microwave. It wasn’t even a set of towels or a package of hangers, which we would have been equally happy to see. It was the dehumidifier. Our spirits deflated even more when Chris lifted the dehumidifier from the box and found two smashed stainless-steel lids sitting on the bottom of the box.

One box down and thirteen more to go (as soon as they get here).

    Hi Kriste, Chris, Ally and Kylee:

    The receipt of your shipped goods sounds like it is Christmas morning, in your new location and in this month of March. I guess it is better to receive late than not to receive.
    Do, how is life today? Are all four of you happy to be so far from home? Are the girls doing well in school? All four of you are in our daily prayers. We want to see you all receive the very best.

    it is still winter here in Southern Alberta, as we did receive a little snow overnight and early this morning.

    Just can’t wait to see you again and give you all a big hug. We love you and we miss you.
