Orange dust stuck to my feet, warn sun on my skin, and absolute exhaustion. Yup, I have arrived back in Malawi! I touched down today and was picked up by ABC staff at the airport. I am working on moving in to my house, which is a 4 bed, 4 bath home - I am currently sharing with only one person, but after Christmas, we'll be full!
This weekend is time to move in and get used to the time zone (so, of course, I'll be up early and out the door to visit with friends and catch up!!), and starting next week will be orientation and frantic prep of classrooms.
I apologize for the quietness of the blog during the summer - it was busy at home, and I wanted to really settle in and enjoy being with my family. So, I kept track of things I wanted to share, and as I have time, I will write and back-post them!
Thank you all for your support and prayers - it means the world to me! I am so thankful and amazed that not only did I make every single connection, but all 4 of my checked bags did too! Not only that, but I had enough of a layover in Amsterdam that I was able to leave the airport and spend a few hours exploring the city. It made an otherwise long and tedious journey a lot more interesting!
