Returning Home

We are Stateside now. We left Gemena two weeks ago today and after three plane rides, a couple nights in a hotel and a van ride...we arrived in Rockford. We were greeted at the airport by 3 out of 4 parents...or should I say grandparents.
Hannah was strapped into a car seat for the first time. She thought nothing of it for the first hour until she got tired and cranky. When she realized mom would not take her out and hold her, she cried. She has cried in her car seat almost every time since as well.
We spent six days seeing family, a few friends and resting. Then we drove up to Minneapolis to attend debrief meetings at the ReachGlobal office. It was nice to spend a little time with ReachGlobal staff who gave us the opportunity to share our experiences from the past two years. It allowed us to take time to reflect on what we walked through during our time in Congo. We also had the opportunity to meet with some people from one of the churches that supported us. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time with that group of people and reconnecting with some of those who were part of a team we hosted in Congo.

Hannah has meet grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins and great-grandparents. We have had the opportunity to meet with a handful of friends as well. We look forward to connecting with more people over the next several weeks. Please email us at our new email addresses or if you would like to set up a time to meet with us.
