Surreal is how it feels. Just less than a week ago we were driving on the left side, boiling our water, sleeping under mosquito nets, and living next door to the poorest people I have ever seen. And now, we are back home in Bellevue and it is different. But, not different in ways you would expect... It is just the little things, like seeing a mailman deliver mail, a garbage truck with the little remote control arm picking up garbage, paved roads without potholes and water pressure. You find yourself every once in a while just gazing out at the landscape, trying to take it all in. Though we were only gone for nine months, it felt a lot longer. It is great being with family again, and it is great having ample gluten-free food to eat. We are looking forward to this next two weekends, seeing friends and worshiping with our churches. We woke up this morning at 4:30am, ready to face the day. The joys of jet lag... But, we dare not even remotely complain as it has been such a great transition, from the flight to being home... I am so thankful for the smooth transition so far and your prayers are being heard. Thank you...
