And we're back in Europe!
We flew into Vienna from Tel Aviv, to wind and chilly temperatures. Brrr!! Wish I'd gotten my coat out from my suitcase.
We'd booked a shuttle van back to Ostrava, but finding where it departed from was a little tricky. I'm thankful Dave is so relaxed about things like that, and not afraid to go ask for directions! With a cup of coffee in hand, he can do anything! 😉
We finally connected with the van and driver, got our things loaded in, and headed back to Czech. We had a four hour drive ahead of us.
Twenty minutes into the trip, the driver's phone rang. After some conversation (in Slovak as he was from Slovakia!), he told us he'd forgotten a passenger at the airport. So back we went to pick him up! Made the trip home a little longer, but we did arrive safely at 1 this morning.
These past sixteen days have been filled with some of the most treasured memories: the GYI trip to Herrnhut and Prague, our 30th anniversary celebration, and then Israel again for a week. I've got a journal full of notes to read over and a heart full of joy to live out of.
My heart is full of thanks to the Lord for his kindness and goodness over these past weeks.
