Last time we Skyped was Saturday. He still didn’t know then when he will come home to the Philippines. We had been waiting for almost three weeks for his exit visa to be processed. It seemed ages as we waited for the day to finally come.
Sunday, he followed up at the office as to the status of his coming home. No luck. He decided to go to the mall to while away his time, then suddenly, he received a call from the office saying he’s gonna fly that night back to the Philippines. His plane ticket awaits him. In a rush, he went back to his accommodation to prepare his stuff. Good thing, most of his baggage was sent through LBC way back last June.
We constantly communicated until he boarded the plane – Malaysia Airlines at that. So I prayed that no harm will befall all the passengers, with the recent events that had happened with that particular airline.
12 noon of Monday, the plane had its touchdown on Philippine soil. Blissful arrival after two long years of being in a foreign land. He was welcomed with a rainy weather, a wonderful respite from the hot temperature in Dubai.
2 pm, he arrived at our house. We were so happy to be finally together again. First hug, first kiss, first meal after a long, long while. It felt so good to be beside the loved one I so missed terribly.
He’s back and he’s here to stay (hopefully), because we still got a baby project going. Pray with us on this will you? We fully trust that God will take care of us here in the Philippines as He did when He took care of us when we were temporarily apart.
All praises to God for being our provider and protector! 🙂
