Our summer adventure has finally come to an end and many of us are finding it hard to believe the number of creation’s natural wonders we’ve seen and touched. We’ve had some time this past week to reflect on our individual team adventures and we also spent some time exploring the sites of home base.
At home base, we visited a beautiful cave that was full of crystal walls and clear water in which we swam and cooled off. Another day we hiked to a local waterfall that we all enjoyed swimming in and fighting the current. On a couple of nights, we helped a few young students practice their English by playing some fun games with them. A few guys also interacted with the local community by visiting a public basketball court and shooting some hoops with the men out there. Last night we all enjoyed roasting hot dogs and s’mores over a fire on the local beach.
In the next 24 hours we will all be on our way back to the states. We will start together, but gradually spread out among different flights and airlines. Please ask Dad to provide smooth travels and to keep us safe as we return. We are all excited to see our loved ones and are looking forward to our arrival home! Also take time to ask Him to touch the hearts of the people we interacted with this summer.
