Home Again

Wow, we had a great trip! It was so good to be able to see and visit with friends and partners in the US again before heading back to Burkina for a few years in September. It's also so good to sleep in our own bed again :)

We arrived back home after midnight last night. And unloaded the car. Better than doing it this morning when I had to get up early to go down to the Wycliffe office in Toronto, about an hour's drive away. Kathy & I are manning the office on Mondays and Tuesdays for the next few weeks and I had to get a key and the alarm code for when we start this coming week.

Spent the rest of the day catching up on correspondence, making an oil change appointment for the car, wading through a pile of mail, and working on a presentation while Kathy unpacked, did laundry, put stuff away, and went grocery shopping. In a few days, our US trip will seem like a distant dream, but I've got a ton of pictures to help keep those memories alive. Good things to take back to Burkina with us, for the days when we get homesick, lonesome, and depressed. Yes, contrary to popular opinion, those days do come to bite us in the butt now and then :)

Heartfelt thanks to everyone who hosted us, housed us, fed us, entertained us, and listened to our stories. You were God's blessings to us. We hope that in some small way, we were a blessing to you too.
