After a long and grueling day of travel, I have arrived at a friend’s house to park my car and get an hour or so of sleep before I leave for my flight. I think the drive from Columbia to St. Louis was worse than the drive from Kansas City to Columbia. Coming from KC, the storm was terrifying but exciting at the same time. Twice, I thought my car had been struck by lightening because it struck so to me. My car shook from the ground up. The one lightning bolt sounded like it exploded a tree. However, the second leg to St. Louis, although the rain eased up a lot, was more dangerous because I had trouble staying awake. I had to stop at one point but made it okay. Everything is already so exciting and I haven’t even left the country! Maybe I will lose my luggage next…
I am going to miss those closest to me, very dearly, but I am ready to leave, ready to serve, ready to learn, …and ready to sleep. Thank the Lord for the Atlantic Ocean and 767’s.
