Heading Home

September 28, 2012·




You guys, we have Internet again.

Also, for anyone who is curious… YES, starting my blog posts with the phrase, “You guys,” is, in fact, a thing.

We haven’t had access to Internet or wifi or anything for the last two days, and now we are back in Nairobi heading to the airport to begin our long journey home.

This trip has been defining for me, for my husband, for our marriage. I’m still working a whole lot of emotions, ideas, wishes, hopes, dreams out through prayer – and probably will be for a long time. I’m sure I’ll be hashing it out on this here blog over the coming months.

And I’ll of course be sharing more photos and stories. I’m in a bit of a time crunch now and can’t share too much, but I did, in fact, want to update you guys and let you know that we are doing well. We, being the Newhope team.

It really has been an amazing trip this yer and I feel so blessed right now. God is pretty awesome.

I miss you all back home and look forward to hearing and reading what I’ve missed while I’ve been gone.
