Welcome Home

After a few small delays and a lovely time hanging out in the Doha airport for 8 hours I arrived in Manila. Exhausted but happy to have the bulk of my trip over. I was picked up by my friend Andy and greeted with the warmth of friendship and lively conversation that I have come to expect from him. I can’t tell you how nice it is to be met like this after such a long journey. After a good night sleep I took my last flight and finally arrived in Tacloban. Margie met me at the airport with the words welcome home. Words that I have heard a few times since I arrived and words that are so true. While I am not looking forward to tasks like unpacking I find that it has been easy to slip back into  my life here. Like I have just returned from a short vacation.  The long layover in Doha was worth it because it meant I was able to be with my church one last Sunday.

  1. Happy you’re trip went well, that you were welcomed back so warmly, and that it felt comfortable to be back “home.” We didn’t get to see each other much, but I miss you here already. You’re loved on both sides of the world! 🙂
