We made it home safely yesterday-Poyang in Taiwan, Korina in Spokane, Jen in Oregon, and Holly and I in Seattle! We all miss our surrogate family (Barry and Michelle Marshall and their three kids) dearly, but it does feel good to be out of the humidity and enjoy some of that Seattle sunshine. Our trip exceeded any expectations and we have felt the Lord's love transform us over the last two months. Thank you again to everyone who has been praying for us; we can cerrtainly attest to the power of prayer with how blessed we were on our trip. And thank you to my teammates, I miss you guys something fierce, and cherish the permanent bond between us.
I pray that the other deputation teams return safely and enjoy their remaining time. I can't wait to trade stories at our Debrief in September!
