I'm sitting here at the airport in Minneapolis during a 6 hour layover and glad to have some quiet time. Yesterday was tough. It is hard to say goodbye to people, especially when you know you won't see them for a year. I am blessed to know so many great people and to have a fantastic family. They are so supportive of this adventure I am going on! I thank God for each and every one of you.
From here, I fly to Amsterdam for a 3 hour layover (probably just enough time) then on to Dar es Salaam witha stop in Kilimanjaro. I'll spend tomorrow night in Dar es Salaam before taking an 8- hour bus ride to Dodoma. I am so excited to be there!
