Gherkins Adrift in Tokyo....

Shudder! It's happened.

The boys were delayed getting out of San Angelo on American Airlines. They  missed their flight in Dallas. They ARRIVED in Tokyo one hour past the time Josiah was booked to fly.

The domestic ticket is with JAL and is not guaranteed if you don't arrive in time. We may have to buy Josiah another ticket out of pocket.  Train schedules changed recently and it's too late to get them on the train to us.

They are trying to use the pay phone, talk to American Airlines and JAL and see if someone can work something out for them...then they'll try to shuttle across Tokyo, find a hotel and try to fly to us tomorrow. JAMIN has a flight for tomorrow. Josiah doesn't, we're praying he can get on a flight tomorrow. Pray with us, please.

We found out JUST as we got on coats to go meet them. Stacia is sad and not understanding this at all.  I'm about to take the bullet train to Tokyo in the a.m. and bring them home myself...but I'm not sure how the new schedules work either. ::snort::  Still it seems that if you're going to be adrift it should be with mama....though they are 21 and 19.

Choosing Joy!

Sorry to hear the connections didn't work out.. sigh.
I bet the boys are looking at it as an adventure... although I'm sure they're anxious to see the family

might as well make the most of it and see the adventure. However, PRAYING, it works out fast and to the best so they get home and the fun can begin. love/prayers to all - US
