So I’m off on the formula trip tonight… Jacob’s getting some good alone time. (Something we all need, I think.) I think he’ll have more fun than me.
The trips bring me down… just seeing kids in hard situations, and it’s super-cold where I’m headed and super-sad to be so ‘up close and personal’ to such difficulty.
I’ll be back in 3 days. Two sleepless nights on a train and two days of hard work. I’m hoping I don’t get sick… it’s just a wearing trip and you’re exposed to a lot. Pray for us, please?
The upside to these trips is that they tend to remind me why we do what we do…
(PS: Funny thing – The pastor of my childhood church sent me a new pair of under armour long underwear. It arrived today! Just in time for my trip. So thanks Mike and those of you at Hi-Land Christian… you have perfect timing.)
