Let me begin by saying that this road trip has not really gone as planned. Things have broken (more on that story later), plans have fallen through, things have been rearranged and are generally different than I had hoped. But I’m doing my best to salvage what I can and make the most of this next week. Please keep praying for the appointments I do have and for me to make the most of these opportunities.
But despite the hiccups and set backs, I have thoroughly enjoyed catching up with friends who I worked with in PNG and also friends who I haven’t seen in about 20 years. There is something really special about having lunch with a pre-school friend. Too bad we forgot to snap a picture but unlike friends who you haven’t seen since highschool, we’ve actually (thankfully) changed a bit in the last 20 years! I’m so thankful for the people God has put in my path!
Paul and Laura were in training camp with me (and also Brian and Susan) when we first got to PNG in 2008. They are headed back hopefully at the beginning of next year. But it was super fun to catch up with them here in the Seattle area!
