We Made It!!!
On the Monday before our flight, we called to confirm our tickets, and per our travel agent's request, let the airline know that we had extra baggage. However, we were abruptly told we could not take our extra bags (only 5 each).
After taking an extra breath and saying a prayer, we started looking at options. There were very few options, but miraculously, the Lord answered our prayer and provided our first guest, who has agreed to take the extra baggage with him! He will arrive the first week of November. We are so thankful for how the Lord works! Isn't it fun to just watch Him answer prayers, we didn't even know we had? :)
