Leaving Armenia

Today the medical team went in search of tickets. Lufthansa couldn't give them any credit on their Georgia tickets and some had to pay $2300 to $3000 one way. There may be the possibility of some remuneration from Lufthansa later, but Jeff was skeptical. Since each of these team members pay for their own tickets it can be quite a burden.

Yerevan, the capital of Armenia is flooding with people trying to escape Georgia. They are all going there because it is the only safe crossing out of Georgia and all traveling by bus and auto. There are many more Americans and Europeans who have left Tbilisi and other parts of Georgia all trying to get passage out. Thus the reason for very expensive tickets as flights are all filled up until the 19th of August. Our team will leave tomorrow morning at 2 a.m. That will be 6 p.m. CST today. Please pray for their safe travel and a sense of peace. Jeff has yet to get a flight home.
