Unfortunately John woke up with a fever and the stomach flu this morning therefore he remained at home. We miss you John and hope that you are better soon!
Our morning started early. We met at the airport around 5 for our 6 a.m. flight to Houston connecting on to Managua. We arrived around 12:30 p.m. their time (1 hr off from DC), went through customs and then set off to San Juan de Oriente. We were warmly greeted by approximately 200 parishioners -- mostly children. After welcoming remarks, music and a blessing we met our host families. Soon we'll be getting together for dinner with our host families and the Church Council at John and Bill's house.
We'll post more later but I wanted to let everyone know we arrived safe and sound.
I am so glad to be back!! It's like coming home...
