We arrived in Charlotte around 1:00 this morning, made it home around 2:00 this morning, and our heads hit the pillow around 2:30 this morning after quick hugs to some groggy kids and a much-needed shower.

It was up-and-at-em by 7:30 this morning so I'm functioning on very little sleep. As soon as I hit "Publish" I'm on my way to bed. I might dream in Spanish. I know I'll dream of precious people that hold deep areas of my heart.

Thank you is inadequate to express how grateful we are for your prayers, your encouragement, and your support. A ministry opportunity like this is a wholehearted team effort and you were an important part of that team.

My heart is full - overflowing, in fact. My mind is racing - so much to process and think through. Our time in Bolivia was incredible. Amazing. Blessed. Life-changing. Motivating. Energizing.

Once again, God captured Grady and I and we felt his embrace as he confirmed for us our place and priority in ministry. The intense rush from serving other people and the immense sense of wonder from watching God do what only he can do is mind-altering and life-changing.

Between all of us on the team, there are thousands of pictures and hundreds of stories. But for all of us, there is only one God and we each are overwhelmed with the incredible opportunity to have seen his mighty work in the church on Bolivia.

It will take time to get my thoughts organized and share them with you, but when I do, sit back and hold on tight. It's impossible to be relaxed and nonchalant when God is involved.
