For those of you tracking me on my travels...
I’m at training!!! Which means I happen to be in Orlando, FL for the week. Don’t worry though, all my Michigander friends, I’m not living the life on the beach. Rather, I’ve dubbed this place the land of rain, WIND, and an occasional spot of sunshine. Either Florida never was actually sunny, or the sun just forgot to come out and play when I got here.
Regardless, I’ve been making some new friends and reconnecting with old while here. One of my friends from Tanzania is here, and happens to be my roommate, though neither of us realized the other would be here! What a blessing from the Lord!
I’m learning a lot – about how to deal with stress on the field and in the States, how to process transitions, and other “vital” information for any missionary who happens to be on furlough in the States for any length of time. And... best of all, they asked us what our favorite candy is and BOUGHT IT FOR US before we got here! Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, what? I feel pampered!
On the way down, I managed to see a few random sights. (It happens when driving across the whole country, I suppose. And you think a whole lot more about it when you’re driving solo and don’t have books on tape to keep you company…) Since it's nearly 10:30 and I have training starting again early tomorrow, I'll have to keep you in suspense as to what these random sights were. But... just wait. And be prepared to laugh!
