Far away still

It is ironic, that I still feel far away.  As a missionary, you deal with being away from  your families while serving in a foreign country.  It is the bittersweet time of waiting for that skype call and coordinating  the dinner/parties so that you come home to receive or make the long distant call.  Well, now I am back home in Alaska with some relatives near (my parents are thousands of miles away).  It was special to enjoy the celebration at church and with them for a lovely simple dinner.  Nevertheless, I spent some of the day praying and missing my African family.  Now, I have the reverse to miss.  But, I did get to make the skype call to Africa and greet my dear friend Mary.
