It's official.  The chocolate chips are packed.  And just for the record, they are not all for me.  My containers are NEARLY packed.  And I am slated to leave on a JET plane in just over 48 hours.  It doesn't feel real.  But, in truth, it is VERY real indeed! My time here in the States has been SO rich and So full.  As I stood in church on Sunday, I was teary.  So neat to stand in worship with friends here.  I fly to Europe and will be in Scotland for about 5 days (Thank you Grams up in heaven!) and then journey on down to Uganda.  I am getting SO excited to see friends and family there.  Yep, I said family.  So many there have become family to me.  I will undoubtably miss people here.  Saying goodbye and hello is not easy.  It's a shift in posture as my heart really remains a bit in both worlds.  
As of right now, I am slated to return to the States at the very end of July.  In the beginning of August, I will see a specialist at Mayo.  Thank you to so many of you who prayed for that.  My heart is peaceful.  I will also spend time on the East Coast working on choosing things for a container of medical supplies.  Hopefully, my trip to North Carolina will not include tomato size hail balls.  (like my trip to Arkansas!)  Love you all and so thankful for each and every one of you! You all are a GIFT to me! To my friends here in the states.  I love you and am so thankful for you.  Thank you for such a life giving time .  To my friends in Uganda.  Nsanuse nyo nyo kumbanga njja ku mulabba mu weeki emu!
