Dave, Claire and I are just about to board a plane in Krakow.
Flying via Munich and London, we'll get to Chicago in about 16 hours.
Yes, we've got a long day ahead of us...but once we arrive, there are some special days ahead!
Not only do we get to see Tyler, Lara, Caleb and Haley but we also get to celebrate Claire's 18th birthday with them tomorrow!
We're in the States for a number of reasons...visiting colleges with Claire and a missions conference at our home church, Grace Church of DuPage in Warrenville, over the weekend.
Moody also has their annual mission's conference this week so we'll get to drop in on that as well.
Dave stays in the States for JV board meeting and some other travels, but Claire and I will head back home in eight days.
It'll be a fast, but wonderful trip. Already very thankful for what's ahead!
Just wondering if any of you will make it to JV orientation at all? We will be there the 22-27th in Wheaton and would love to say hi to any of the Patty family!
