Justin and Emma have been ready for days. They are excited to see Grandpa and Grandma, to enjoy a cheeseburger from McDonald's, to have mama's mac n' cheese, and to return to school.
They were excited to come to Africa and now they are excited to come home - how wonderfully resilient they are!
Claude and I are ready to move into the next chapter, the next season of life back in Arizona.
There will be plenty of travel, visits with friends, on-going work with Africa's brightest leaders and more trips to the continent in our future. But for now, we will be glad to return to our home base and reconnect with friends.
Thank you for being such faithful friends to us this summer. We will thank many of you in person sometime soon!
See you soon!
