From Stateside

I realized I should have posted a final blog, as I have already been back home for a little over a week now. The first few days back were quite a change. The first time I went to drive my car I almost hit the car next to me because it was so easy to turn. I spent over 2 hours in the grocery was so strange to have everything so available to me; I had no idea what to buy. In church, I almost turned to Beth, all excited, to comment that the service is in English!

I think the greatest difficulty we have had so far is relating our trip experience. People will ask, "how was it?" What do I say? "Great...but terrible. Awesome...but really sad. I LOVED it...but I wanted to cry all the time the first week I was there." Long story short, we appreciate your prayers and you following us along the way. I hope that our stories have served to inspire or touch you in some way. Finally, I won't keep posting, but please do continue to pray for the missionaries and hospital. It didn't really occur to me until the last week, but the clinic sees 500-600 patients every monday, wednesday and friday. So every clinic day that the chaplain's office gives their morning devotion, they have a huge opportunity to reach a lot of people.

Here are a few of the trip highlights in photo form. Love you all, and thank you for your support.
