Honey I'm Home :)

That is all I have from my trip, all the video and all the pictures! It was a dream to be back in Yaounde and things went so well! I'm so thankful to all of you for your prayers and support!

I really enjoyed being with my parents and seeing how they live and where they live. They took such good care of me and I felt spoiled! It is so nice to eat moms cooking! Being with them was such a huge blessing! They helped me with the finishing touches on my lessons and took great care of me in every way.

It was amazing to have Mandy meet me at the airport and drop me off too. Without Mandy I'm not sure any of this would have happened! It was really special getting to spend time with her. I also enjoyed getting to see the Lamberts, and having dinner with them and their precious girls who just left my youth group here in the states last year.

My cousin Jordan took amazing care of me and I really loved being able to spend so much time with him! It was great going camping with him and spending some time with his great kids and beautiful wife! He is my blood and I really enjoy him!

It was very special getting to see Karl, one of my best friends in high school, I really enjoyed having lunch at his house and meeting his kids and wife. He has led quite an adventurous life.

Mr. Chilton is the only teacher that taught me that was there, it was so special getting to hang out with him, I don't know that I will ever be able to call him anything other than Mr. Chilton. There were other teachers there that I knew but it was special to me that he was there! he was my English teacher and my drama teacher.

The kids are awesome and I felt like I belonged! It was so great being with them and being home in Africa. The retreat was so great, good venue, the small groups were so cool, hearing people's stories and talking to kids afterwards was a highlight for me!

God took care of me from beginning to end! I breezed in and out of security, my bags came in without any incident and the flights were comfortable and fun! I couldn't believe how kind God was during my flight!

I got a whole row to myself on the way to Brussels and was able to sleep the whole way. The flight home was overbooked but I had an empty seat next to me and that made sleep possible again. Then the door to the luggage got stuck and we were looking at a long delay... only to end up being just 3 minutes late. I began expecting with full confidence that God would make a way where there seemed to be no way. It's the little things that make such a big difference.

Being home is wonderful! I have really enjoyed spending this long weekend with my family, home just in time for Valentines Day!

 I feel the love from all of you and from our Heavenly Father!

God is good! All the time!
