Homeward Bound

Well a 2 hour flight will take you a long way from Chausy! Here I am sitting in the Vienna Airport with a free high-speed wireless connection posting in real time … pretty cool.

Yesterday before leaving we had one last stop at the Chausy Orphanage and Jonathan & I took a walk around the grounds. We found some of the kids working on removing a stump from an orchard that they are converting to tillable land.


Some other boys nearby were working on one that wasn’t even cut down yet!


We were given a last chance to say goodbye to the children and it was an absolute swarm! They all came running for hugs and to hang on. It was a really nice way to say goodbye, but it made it hard to leave.



A reporter from a local newspaper came by and took a picture of the delegation as well as some of the children in front of the new tractor.


Well my battery died so I am crouched under the edge of a bar with my laptop plugged in behind a phone booth! Hmmm … I didn’t have these kind of pressures in Chausy! Better run and catch my flight … see you on the other side.

    Our family was involved with the children program in the 90s. We at first thought we were doing something for them. They reminded us of how good we have it here.. The abundance,,, the opportunities. They were old behond their years.
    We still keep in touch with them. They are married and raising children. It is only distance and money that keeps us from getting together again. It is so hard to believe that during a few weeks you can have a lifelong attachtment and love for someone on the other side of the world. We truly believe it is God’s work.
