Homeward Bound!

Gateway HANDS Team:

It was a short night and an early morning!  Our alarm went off at 3:30 am and we were loading up at 4:15 to head off to the airport.  Despite long lines for tickets and customs, we were on the plane in plenty of time, and on our way back home again!

There was a HUGE line for customs in Houston, causing us to barely reach our gate in time for takeoff ... We were relieved to have an hour's delay before takeoff, allowing us all to grab a bite to eat (since none of us had eaten yet that day).

The flights were relatively uneventful, filled with plenty of sleep, and quiet reflection time for each of us.  We were sad to leave our friends, the beautiful people and places of Nicaragua so soon.  But it was also nice to see our families waiting for us as we walked through the doors at the airport!  It was a warm welcome back home again!

We are all so thankful for this opportunity ... to be able to serve and to be served ... to work to help to bring about change, while being changed ourselves.  God is good!  We give Him all of the praise and the glory for this experience!  We pray that He will continue to reveal Himself to us as we remember this experience and process all that we have seen and experienced.  We so feel blessed!
