A Warm Welcome Home

Friday the 13 January 2017 was one of the longest days we have ever experienced. After 22 hours of travel, our flight landed at Salt Lake International airport just 10 minutes later than scheduled. We were down the gangplank fairly quickly and headed for the exit.

When we rounded the corner and walked through the final security gates heading toward baggage pickup we could see a large group of familiar faces, including a dozen children holding balloons and several held signs. After two years away from home and family this was a very warm welcome!

Our hearts are full of gratitude for so many who have shown their love and support as we have served in Cambodia. And how happy we are to be back with such a wonderful group of family.

As we gathered at our home to visit and for oriental food for dinner, complete with the noise of our happy grandchildren. Four year old Kate insisted on having Grandma sit next to her.

Our Friday lasted about 36 hours. We finally made it to bed about 10:00, exhausted and happy.
