Ready to cross the Pacific 

Words just can't describe how it feels to be home!  Praise the Lord for His protection over our family as we traveled.  Thank you, God, for the gift of making it possible for our family to go to Thailand!  
 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 1Pe 5:11

Our flight left Chaing Mia on Monday, Dec 5th at 11:59pm.  (that is Thailand time-which is 15 hrs different than PST time and 12 hrs different than EST.)  Arrived in Seoul, South Korea at 6am Tues. Dec 6th. (Seoul time)  We had a 12 hour layover there and Korean Airlines put us up in the same hotel we used for the overnight layover on the way to Thailand, only we used the rooms for day use this time.  We were able to sleep some and it was great!  Okay, you have to get this next part, so read carefully...  our flight left Seoul at 6:30pm Tues.Dec 6th.  We arrived in Seattle, WA at 11:00am Tues.Dec 6th.  Actually got home around 4pm.  It is really strange to get home before you even left!!

Currently we are slowly adjusting  to the time change.  You can pray that our children will be able to get on the right time soon, and be well.  Hunter has a cold & cough, so Shane & I have taken turns sleeping with him in the recliner so he can be upright.  The coughing makes him toss & turn.
Dad & Mom Turner left this morning.  Many thanks for everything they have done.  Wish you safe travels as you drive across the USA! Our family will miss them being around.  
Bree flies out on Sunday, the 11th.  There will be more adjusting for us all.  Aspen was up at 3:30am yesterday morning sobbing uncontrollably.  When I asked her what was wrong, she said she was sad because Aunt Bree was going to leave us.  So I suggested that maybe she was crying because we were trying to adjust to the time zone and she sobbed No, that Aunt Bree was leaving in 4 more days!!  Pretty much sums up our feelings!   Thank you, Bree, for all the ways you helped our family.  We will miss you and pray for you.
