This is just a short post to say that we are home and will be posting a report from our USA trip in the next few days.
Seven weeks passed by in a flash, but we are so thankful for the time we had. We got to visit with family and friends in Oregon, a quick weekend trip to California (first visit in 10 years!), and a couple of weeks in Chicago. It was so good to see family and old friends, as well as making new friends along the way too. We are so thankful for the time we had with each person and only wish we could have had longer. The children had a wonderful adventure and coped really well with lots of living out of bags, lots of travel, etc. We visited twelve churches, including three that we had never been to before. We were blessed with wonderful kindness as people hosted us in their homes, fed us great meals, etc. In a sense we would be delighted to do the whole trip again, but in another sense we are so happy to be home and not be living out of bags … it is great to be back with our church community at Trinity Chippenham, and so perhaps we would prefer to be here for a while before we do a huge and busy trip again!
Hopefully in the next few days we will be able to give a better report, with some pictures, etc.
