Back in America

Well here I am, back in one of the United States. I've been back for a few days now, and I'm still adjusting. I tried to prepare myself for the shock of being back in America, but there was only so much I could do. I'm still feeling a little overwhelmed, and I'm missing Serenje. It's weird to think that I was just on the other side of the planet a few days ago. Yesterday I shared with the Brookside congregation about my experiences from the last 3 months, but it was a little difficult to communicate everything from the last few months in just a few minutes. It was also hard to put some things into words.
I have to apologize for not posting on the day I flew out, even though I said I would. I was planning on doing one more post but I ran out of my Internet card at the airport. Things have been going so fast since I got back too, I can't believe it's almost been a week already.
I want to thank everyone for all the support I had. So many of you kept up with the blog, stayed in contact with me, encouraged me, prayed for me, gave financially...I'm blessed to have so much support. I mean it sincerely when I say thank you...if you're reading this then it applies to you.

Above is the District Commissioner and I at the site just a few days before I left, below is some of the orphans (could they be any cuter?). I've put some new photos on the Flickr website (click the link at the top right of this page). Also, I promise I'm not annoyed at all by questions, I want to share this with as many people as I can. So feel free to flood me with questions, my email is and my phone number is 402-210-1204.

I can't say enough how much I feel like God is all over this project, both in America and Zambia. I'm excited to see what develops in the future, and I personally feel energized and ready to see what God has for me next. Yesterday I commented on how desperately this world needs Christ...and how they need love. I want to be sold out for that cause.
