What began eighteen days ago has come to a bitter sweet conclusion. I put my feet back on American soil just after 12:30pm yesterday. The sounds of the hustle and bustle of honking horns, people fighting for parking spaces, and no mosquito's (Slava Bogu) greeted us we touched down at LAX.
For some, we head back to work as early as today (not me), but we will leave a little piece of ourselves over in the Czech Republic and Russia. For some…this may be the last mission trip. For others…it may be the beginning of a new career. For me, its somewhere in between.
It is good to be home…to see family and friends…and yes, even to return to work. For now we will eat some beef (they don't eat beef over there), and enjoy some rest while catching up on laundry (my clothes stink).
As Jim would say…
“My body has arrived, but my mind will arrive a few days later.”
Posts from our Pskov journey will be coming over the next couple of days along with more pictures. I hope you have enjoyed this journey, and thank you for being a part of this great adventure with me and the rest of the teams.
Please continue to pray for Dustin and the Petro team as well as the Extreme Youth Camp – they have two more weeks.
