Pray for the return to USA.a bittersweet morning at Lubloi utca 4 of reflecting on ministry in Budapest... then Joanna and I rode a bus, a train and a bus to the airport for the last time together (since my next planned trip is after she & Will return to USA to live). Then I had great flights, both landed early, had some good pub food at Heathrow before flying to Dulles where I was met by our younger daughter running up and hugging me and screaming "I'm engaged!" We then had a very late celebration dinner with the Penos (in-laws-to-be)... quite the day... Anna and I stayed in Dulles (the town, not the airport) and drove home on Monday. Thankful for this trip... PRAY for processing and planning and communicating based on the experiences and findings of this trip.HOME
