the rain gives way to light. we emerge from the city and we're out in rolling green hills, dotted with banana trees. clusters of huts emerge from the bush. life goes on slowly as we fly by.
how incredible that God has called my family and my brothers family to the same country. we do different work. we live in different settings. but they are here. and we are grateful.
