Annalise and I start our journey back to Sierra Leone a week from today! We will have a week layover in Northern Ireland with a good friend who is a missionary there, then arrive in Sierra Leone on July 29!
I am very excited to get back home to Sierra Leone! While it has been absolutely wonderful to be with family and friends, it has been a longer stay than our original plans and we are welcoming the move back to Sierra Leone! I look forward to working as a midwife again, moving forward on Luba Maternity Center, working with and spending time with kids from Jonathan's House, being reunited with friends and living in my house again :)
Please be in prayers for our transition. It is never easy going from one lifestyle and culture to another. I am hoping and praying Anna transitions with ease. She is extremely bonded to family now. She loves her cousin Harvey ALOT! They will surely miss each other. Praying for her transition to daily stuff also like food, heat, rainy season making it difficult to play outdoors (we will arrive in the middle of rainy season!), language differences and in general being in a place that is now foreign to her.
