We are just posting a brief update to let everyone know that we’ve arrived safely back to the States with all of our luggage. The trip was amazing, and we are so happy that we were able to go on this adventure with the Lord. We are absolutely exhausted physically and are taking the next several days to rest, reflect and commune with the Lord with all we have just seen and experienced. We were blessed to have the prayer support while we were on the ground and want to thank all you prayer warriors. We will be posting some pictures, videos and writing after our time to rest, pray and reflect. We are sorry that we were unable to post many updates while in Africa, but our access to the internet was brief and rare.
