Back in the USA

Last week was a blur. Here are the high spots.
*Monday - Our farewell party at Namwianga; most of our furniture was sold and taken, so we moved into a guest house
*Tuesday - We packed, moved things out, said goodbyes, sorted through papers, and had meetings.
*Wednesday - went to bed at 1 a.m. and got up at 3 a.m. to finish up last minute details. Left Namwianga at 10 a.m. with Rod and Sue Calder. Drove to Livingstone and checked into Chanter's Lodge for our last night in Africa.
*Thursday - Flew out of Livingstone at noon. Four flights totaling 27 hours in the air plus some long layovers took us through until
*Friday - Landed in Austin at 10:30 Friday night. Greeted by Sara and David A. and a group of friends from Brentwood Oaks. Drove straight to John and Leah's house to see new grandson Jacob.
*Saturday - Spent most of the day in the Hill Country at the home of Will Ed and Cynthia Winters. John, Leah, and Jacob were there to visit John's friend since childhood, Jared Winters, and his wife Brynn and their baby Layne. Sara and David A. joined us for supper.
*Sunday - Our first Sunday back at Brentwood, and Baby Jacob's first Sunday at church.

Will try to post photos and more details later this week.
