Getting Ready for Vacation

It's been a whirlwind last few weeks as I've worked to finish up my work in our first church plant in Belen. Tomorrow we all (Peruvians and North Americans) get to leave to go back to our homes for a month long, much needed, vacation! Every group of 40/40 missionaries has one break during their time working for Extreme and our break happens to fall over the end of December and beginning of January. What luck!

We have all been antsy for weeks, dreaming about things like hot showers, American food, driving in cars, windows with glass in them, getting to speak in English all the time, and other things of that nature.

The time has finally come. I can't wait to give my parents and sister huge hugs tomorrow night at the airport. And to do the same with friends and other family not too long afterward.

So tonight will be my last night sleeping under a mosquito net for a month. I'm so blessed by the work that I am doing here, and really do love my job. But a vacation to the States for a month is much needed for all. We can't wait for a little relaxing in the comforts of our homes!
