Homeward Bound

This is perhaps a bit premature, but we trust God's care and provision as we ride in a car provided by the guest house to the airport. It feels we've been gone a very long time, and yet it's also hard to believe we will shortly be winging our way towards Dallas (well, after going the wrong way for a while to Dubai to catch the flight to Dallas). Cairo has been an opportunity to catch our breath a bit and to reflect on our time in South Sudan. We also truly enjoyed a brief visit with the Boldts. (I did record a brief interview with them, and am hoping the format will be useable). I also had a chance to meet briefly with Archbishop Shahata. Our only sightseeing here has been in the immediate neighborhood of the cathedral in the Zamelek area of the city. As we slowly make our way to the airport, we pray we will be on time to check in, for successful negotiation of the process into the terminal, successful check in, and, of course. A safe flight home with the accompanying arrival of our luggage. We look forward to opportunities to share pictures and our experiences with those who may be interested. We also look forward to what the Lord is going to do with these visits and relationships. We are thankful to God for our visits, for the opportunity to share, albeit briefly, the lives and community of fellow believers, to experience the Communion, for your prayers, and for the goodness of God.  See you soon!
