I know our journey was somewhat interrupted over the past week. I started to think of missionary days in the past where communication was mainly by snail mail! Aren’t we blessed by modern technology?!
One of the reasons for the “radio” or “internet silence” was because the internet at the hotel was truly bothersome. The hotel is switching over to an increasingly popular service provider, but I got caught in its transitional stage. My side of the hotel did not have the modem equipment up and running yet. So late at night being the only time I could write, didn’t matter much. Yahoo also continued to disturb me throughout the journey. At times I chose not to fight the battle. I was also coming back to the room between 11:00 pm and 1:00 am each night. The internet challenge gave me the opportunity to actually get some sleep!
But that turned out to not be the main reason why I went silent. God was doing the miraculous. We were in awe of what was happening around us. When I sent those first couple of updates, it actually took me hours to put those together. I found it was taking me away from time with the kids, friends and preparation time for the events. So bottom line, I came to a decision and the kids won. It was important for me to be in relationship with the family. I knew you were all praying. I will now spend the next couple of days trying to catch you up. The stories will be just as powerful as if I wrote it on the day it happened. I have actually had time to process and readjust while I have been in Maryland with Carol, Diane, Teri and puppies . New insights have come during this time of debrief and reflection. I am just as excited to write and have you re-join the journey!
