Home again

Well, the trip took longer than expected, but I finally made it home at about 3AM Monday. I ended up having to take a different (later) flight from LA to NYC, and ran into more delays on both ends of that flight too. It all worked out in the end though, and now I'm home unpacking and trying to get my body to believe that it's really early afternoon rather than the middle of the night.

Thank you for all of your prayers, support, and encouragement! I had a great experience in PNG, and I'm so glad I was able to go. Many of you will hear more stories and see more pictures in the near future.

I haven't decided whether or not I'm going to keep this blog going. It's certainly not going to be updated as frequently as it was while I was in PNG. We'll see...

Well, I'm here safe and sound in the Brisbane airport again. Unfortunately, I just found out my next flight to LA is way behind schedule, which means that customs and everything in LA is now compressed into a 20-30 minute window at best, and at worst, I'll land in LA after my next plane to New York has departed. So... if you read this between now and sometime Sunday morning EDT, please pray that all goes well! Thanks!

That said, my last few days in PNG were relaxing. I had some time to myself in the hotel to kind of reflect on everything. This morning's sunrise (as seen from the POM airport as I was boarding my plane) was beautiful, and it made for a nice last glimpse of PNG.

That's all for now, as my internet time is almost up. Hopefully I'll be home in less than 24 hours!
