Empty House

Yesterday we took Mark and Michele Broadway to the airport in Livingstone and came home to an empty house.  After over a month of company, it seems very strange to be just the two of us again. 

The only other American on campus now is Ellie Hamby.  The Merritts, Sheri Sears, and Meagan Hawley are all out on the Westreach Medical Mission this week.  Sadly, Don and Laura Oldenburg left on July 28 to return to the United States to live.  They deserve an individual blog entry later, but for now I’ll just say that we will miss them greatly. 

 Today is the last day of classes for the students.  They will all head home tomorrow for a four-week break.  The campus will be deserted and quiet.  It will take a few days to get used to less noise, less company, and less activity, but I know we will be too busy to be lonely.  These quiet days offer us time to get caught up on all the things that we left undone during the hectic days of June and July.  To everything there is a season.
