We left Rod in Accra as he is heading to Malawi to visit his son, and Anees left the group at Heathrow as he was heading to India to visit his family, but otherwise we all arrived home safe and sound today: on time, and all bags accounted for, too!
It was wonderful to see the faces of our loved ones as we walked through the arrival doors at Pearson Airport. Hugs were filled with love, thankfulness, and the bittersweet realization that this short term mission is over …well, sort of. Practically, we are all now heading back to our ‘regular life’ and routines. Our prayer now is that this was really a new beginning to a new reality, and that we all take time to pause and let the Lord impress on our hearts forever this experience, knowing it will mean something uniquely different to each one of us. May the memories and stories we tell of this time bring the Lord glory.
Thank you all once again! Your love, prayers, support and encouragement breathed life and strength when we needed it.
