On the road (and in the air) again...

Well, our time in Africa has now come to its final hours. WHAT A TRIP! We came with certain expectations and ideas, and the trip delivered! We have experienced things that we did not know exsisted, tasted things we did not know exsisted, and felt emotions that we did not know exsisted. It has been a wonderful trip to say the least! Its 2 1/2 weeks that we will not soon forget.
If you ever have the opportunity to take a trip like this, do it. It doesn't matter how old or how young you are. There is always something you can do. One question I asked myself before I came was, "What do I have to offer the people of Africa." The answer to that question is, not a whole lot. However, Africa and its people had MUCH to offer me! Please, if you get an opportunity, take it!
This morning we will be loading the bus at 9:00am. We will make our way to Dar Es Salaam where we will board our plane just before midnight to make our way to Amsterdam. Finally, we will be landing in MN at 12:20 MN time where we are praying we will meet our luggage! :) We want to say thank you so much for everyone who red this blog and prayed for us. It has been wonderful reading the comments and emails knowing that so many people have been following along with us on this trip. We hope that you felt that you were a part of our trip. Please continue to pray for us as we travel back. Please pray for smooth travel (no bus problems, getting checked in a the airport), safe travel, that our luggage would make it safety to MN the same time we do (some of you have gifts in the luggage so YOU BETTER PRAY!) and that it would just be a good day of travel.
Thank you again for your prayers, and thanks for praying with us for this last leg of our travel and trip. It has been a blast updating this blog, and I plan on giving a final travel blog when we return. Thanks for making us feel so close to home when we have been so far away. You guys rock! In the words of Carolyn..."This trip has been tight!"

See you VERY soon!
Chris and the ladies
