21 Home / Safe and Sound / From R. Seivert

Most know the 3 flights from Houston all arrived late last night. The 8:30  P.M. flight to Omaha was about an hour late but made it. The 11:03 flight to Omaha landed after midnight, but they made it. Corinne and Bailee did not make their connecting flight in Chicago but were met by Corinne's aunt who overnighted them. They left Chicago on the 6:00 A.M. flight and are 10 minutes from landing in Omaha. Their families are at the Omaha airport.
We have a small group coming into Omaha tonight at 8:30 P.M. Their families will be at the airport to get them.
One big request of families - for all those on Thursday's three flights. Please write a comment on this blog if you will be at the airports to get your son or daughter. If you cannot comment please give me a call sometime today. 712-540-3062
If you cannot be at either Omaha or Minneapolis airports I have two vehicles that can return them to LeMars and Sioux City. So please let me know of your plans. No sense in taking vehicles from here if all family will be there to pick them up. Please let me know.                                                                                          One additional item: Many of you left coats, sweaters, etc. on the bus the morning we left Omaha on April 15. I have all of those in my possession. I have no idea which item belongs to whom. So when you all do get home please call me sometime and I can get the correct item to each person.

  3. Corinne and Bailee with us in Omaha. Look great, talking a mile a minute about their experiences! Carli Tritz surprised them by borrowing a friend's car and driving over from Creighton.

  5. Many heartfelt thanks for this opportunity for my daughter! Bailee has shared numerous times she has met outstanding people, and her roommates were the nicest girls she has met!She has also said countless times Fr. Cos and AL put smiles on everyone's faces and always were complimentary of the service this Mission trip provided. She has also expressed she doesn't want to be in an airport for a LONG time! Wishing eeryone safe travels as well as time to go quickly for the remaining team members! Thanks for this wonderful opportunity of stewardship, and in the last few days the chaperones filling in as parents to my daughter!
    God Bless!

  6. Good Morning, All,
    Heart so full can't explain... Katelyn & Kyle sure tried to explain to us as we were treated to two hours of wonderful stories about an amazing mission trip on our drive home from Omaha. I cannot wait to look at the 400+ pictures and hear the story that goes along with each one. Cos, would that be an excused absence? ! Thank you for Shepherding the team and for claiming their checked items :)
    Just hoping for all the rest to get home soon and safe!! Coordinators & Chaperones, know that the opportunities and experiences you were able to provide to these students was so full of life lessons and one they will always fondly remember.

  8. We will be at the airport in Minneapolis Thursday night to meet Mary & Matt. My brother and sister-in-law (Dave & Janet) plan to drive their suburban as well. We can take 1 or 2 vehicles as needed. Mr. Seivert - feel free to give my cell # (712)540-7574 to anyone in the Minneapolis group that wants to coordinate traveling together, rides for students etc. Can't wait to hear their stories! Jim

  12. Thank you so much for an amazing life-changing experience for Julie( and our whole family )
    We are still hearing so many stories about the phenomenal people she was fortunate enough to meet and learn from on her journey. I'm so glad I got to thank a few people in person at the airport for all their help. Especially Al at the hospital, the Walshes for the trip to LeMars, the Fitzsimmons for parenting one more at the send-off assembly,The Wankums for
    transportation to the pre-pick-up tailgater,the Spears for calling into work for Julie, Katelynn Walsh for sharing her cash and... O.K.
    maybe more than just a few. To Mr. Seivert-Your constant up to the minute information was so helpful. I never felt out of the loop. I know it must have been so frustrating to have to keep trying different schedules to get everyone out safely and together with a chaperone. You did a magnificent job, especially considering you were half a world away. It took me a while to figure out you were in LeMars and not in Honduras. Brilliant, right? Again , my heartfelt thanks to everyone.

  13. Bailee and Corinne,

    Just a note to say I'm sad I did not get to say a proper good-by to you both. I tried to get to your gate in Houston but you were already gone by the time I got through customs. I am glad we pushed you to the front of the plane before you got off. I really enjoyed you both and you were great representatives to your school, families and your country. I will contact you when and if (sure I will) I go back to Honduras. Maybe we can do a reunion tour! God bless! Al
