We Are Here

After a 44 hour long journey we arrived Sunday night at Detroit Metro Airport. What a wonderfully pleasant surprise it was to have a "Welcome Home" group of friends from our sending church waiting to greet us when we went to collect our luggage!

Monday we enjoyed time with relatives and were cold in the 68 - 74 degree weather!!!!BRRRRRRRRR!!!
My sister-in-law thought it funny when Mikayla and I were 'oohing and aahing' over the automatic doors; wide, big carts; cleanliness of the store; the fact that the check-out conveyor belt actually worked; and the fact that no one was staring at us while we grocery shopped! It was very fun to shop for groceries in a US store again!!!

Today Kirsten awoke with croup and a fever of 101. Pray she heals up from this soon.
Mikayla also is running a low-grade temp and is stuffed up.
Ben is just tired.
So am I. I plan to go to bed in the next hour or so.

Hopefully I can post some pictures soon! I need to have Kurt do it as we are using his laptop while we travel and I'm not sure how to do it on this Mac he has!

Thanks for your prayers! It is so good to be here for a while and reconnect with family and friends!
