Morning in Amsterdam

Here I am in Amsterdam after somewhere between 9-12 hours of flying (I lost track)! I sat next to a nice man from Moscow who spoke very little English but had some good things to say about America. I was looking at one of those airplane magazines with him andhe pointed to a picture of a state fair and said, "shark to tourists" was a tourist trap! He even made shark teeth motions with his hands. So fun.

The Loftises, the Bobos, Matt, Collin, and I are all here safe and healthy. The next leg of our flight will land us in Entebbe, Uganda where we will meet up with my host family and 8 South Africans. Prayers for another safe flight, good sleep, and reasonable plane food (a luxury, I know) are appreciated :)

PS--Blogger is in Dutch here. It's a good thing I've posted before or I wouldn't be able to figure it out!

The Packing Room

A week from today, I will be on a plane flying to Uganda for the 4th time! I am excited but a little anxious. This trip is so different than any other I've been on, but I'm looking forward to all the new adventures God will bring my way. Currently, the guest room is the "packing room" and it is covered in clothes, gifts, medicine, and teaching curriculum. Since I only have about 2 weeks between Africa and move-in day at Texas A&M (Whoop!), the guest room is also home to dorm decorations, sheets, and 70 pink clothes hangers.
