Home at last. Our flight landed in Atlanta just after 6 AM on Wednesday, but by the time we could collect our baggage and be collected by Kieth & Ann Fields, it was 8 AM when we reached Dacula. Thankfully our return trip was slightly shorter than our departure 3 weeks ago . . . only 40 hours from Pago to Dacula.
It has been a good campaign, but exhausting. In the past 24 days we have traveled more than 25,000 miles, most of that by the 14 different airplanes we have flown. Jimmie spoke 3 times at the Eastern Shore lectureship, he and Ron conducted 3 Gospel meetings, Carolyn and I taught ladies classes., and we have all been incredibly busy with a variety of tasks and very little down time. There were two major purposes of this trip - encouragement to brethren who can easily feel isolated and spreading the word about our work. I think both objectives were met, particularly since we picked up new teachers for IBTM and new students for ICOTB both.
Thank you to all who made this campaign possible.
