We are so grateful to Wycliffe for the re-entry seminar they provide for teams serving overseas.  They included every member of the family in age-appropriate activities.

We worshipped in our heart language together and filled up the room with praise (really, we could have recorded it and sold many copies of people truly grateful for the opportunity to sing in English).  Oh, how they nurtured us this week. 
We were giving a fire hose of information, reminding us how to navigate retirement and insurance and the in-house websites and all of that business stuff that we really never think about when we are in the Solomon Islands.

The sweetest part was rubbing shoulders with people who have a heart to see God's Word translated into every language around the world.  These are some of the most amazing people I've ever met.  The MKs especially forged strong friendships.  We prayed for each other, cried with each other, and rejoiced with each other.  All week long. 
What a great rocket pad to launch back into the "real world" in just a few days as we return to Arkansas...

The last four words are my favorite. :)

But, all of this reminds me of our re-entry experiences. Yes, there definitely were strong relationships forged. I still keep in touch with some of those MKs!
