After a couple of days of jet lag and letting the reality of what all went on in Africa settle in to my brain, I'm finally ready to start looking back over it through my pictures.  Here are some that I'd like to share with you, as I take you on a guided tour of our journey to Kenya together...

The morning of June 7th began with some idle time at the Indianapolis airport waiting to board our first flight in to Heathro.  Everyone's energy was pretty good - excited about what was to come... (Keeley, Cara, and Ashley)

 (Erika, Kristyn, Sierra, and Megan)

THEN!  This awesomely funny God thing happened - another missions group came up to greet us (our lime green neon shirts might have given us away that we were a team out to do something), and Ashley realized she knew one of the girls from Passion in Atlanta, GA earlier this year!  It was cool chatting with them and praying together for each other's journeys.

 Moss being Moss, and me being lucky enough to capture a moment of it.  She's hilarious.  We quickly nick-named her "the cheerleader". 

Cara, my niece, was the first honorary recipient of one of Corey's gratuitous "lean backs".  :)  Let's just say Corey isn't a ... morning person. :)  Brudder!

 The men of the other group prayed over our leader, my husband Todd, before parting ways. 
 It was definitely a cool beginning to what was going to be the trip of a lifetime...
