Thursday and Friday, January 30-31, 2020

Well it’s time to go home. I thought about using my new Uber skills, but as it’s 5,753 miles as the crow flies, that wasn’t realistic 😁

I went down for breakfast at my normal time, but the dining room was considerably different than the past week and a half.

Bags are packed and the safe is pretty much cleaned out πŸ‘

Boarding at Puerto Montt for the first leg of the journey to Santiago.

My life for the next 20 or so hours!

Beautiful scenery of Puerto Montt. The big lake is what we toured around this past Sunday.

Upon arriving at Santiago I enjoyed a good four or so hours or so of fellowship with Mark Perry, a fellow seminarian and co-laborer in Ohio for the last 20 years. A few years ago he and his wife Bekah went to Antofagasta serving as missionaries. He got a cheap flight to come down. That was a gracious gift on his part. It was good to learn more of their work there and how things have progressed the last two years. Pray for this dear couple!

My flight out of Santiago left at 10:00 p.m. providing a spectacular view of the city.

Arriving in Atlanta. Getting there at 5:15 a.m. was actually a nice benefit as immigrations and customs had just opened. I flew through them and TSA in about 15 minutes!

Look who was waiting for me at the Cleveland airport! 😘😁

Driving home there was snow on the ground and the thermometer was in the thirties, welcome back to Northeast Ohio, hehheh!

I praise the Lord for his grace and mercy over the last two weeks! There are so many other things I could say but I probably should just sign off right now πŸ‡¨πŸ‡±πŸ‡¨πŸ‡±πŸ‡¨πŸ‡±
