In DC

Well, I made it to DC safe and sound--except for two broken fingernails. That, I can handle. My luggage is HEAVY, filled as it is with World Bible School materials, Bibles, etc. Wrestling both pieces off the carousel and loading them onto a $3.00 cart no doubt provided comic relief for passersby. That $3.00 was worth every penny. Frankly, I thanked the Lord my baggage made it: Continental, Houston, and my suitcases have had issues. Remember that final scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark--the one where the ark disappears in a cavernous warehouse? Kind of like that.

There's nothing but closed office buildings, trees, and a lone Burger King outside the hotel. Fortunately, I'm fine with a cheeseburger and fries. Now I'm just relaxing, waiting for the Leveretts, and already missing my family. Exciting, huh?

Keep those prayers going!

Have a wonderful time, soak it all in like a sponge, and don't worry if you get squeezed and some of you drips out. ; ) What drips out will be Christ Himself, flowing through you.

love ya!

Glad you've completed the first hop on your trip. Get a good night sleep and enjoy the loooooong flight to South Africa.
