Well almost. For the first time in our 6+ year history in Kuwait all three of us have cleared customs together. We are now waiting for the minutes to tick by so we can use our special B-class ‘you’re too cool for school’ pass to the front of the line at the gate. Apparently United is going to let us jump in front of the rest of the contractor express since we’re just such good folks. We should be heading that way in about 30 minutes.
I’ve texted everyone I know in the world who helped, called in favors, laid on the hands, or just prayed – it worked! Like every other time I’ve tried to leave this has been a six month ordeal that would rival even a Spanish language soap opera but after calling in favors from a Kuwaiti Supreme Court Justice, the Deputy Minister of Interior, and the Chief of the Immigration Police we should be on our way home shortly. So, if we didn’t call or text you it’s because you moved back home a few weeks ago and never emailed us your phone numbers – otherwise you should’ve heard the good news already. But again – to everyone – thank you. You too Jesus – thank you Jesus!
