In Chicago we cleared immigration and customs and had just enough time to make to our connecting flight. We arrived at the gate as passengers were already loading into the small Brazilian-made Embraer jet. After less than an hour in the air we arrived home. My wife Marjolaine met us at the airport to drive us home, it was wondeful to see her about being away for over 4 weeks.
Thanks to all of you who read the blog, for your support and encouragement both for me and for the work of UCG.
My next trip on behalf of UCG, if all goes as planned, will be a 7-week trip between June and August to Jordan and Israel. My family will join me this time as we accompany United Youth Corps volunteers who will be working at two summer camps in Jordan, and who will then tour Jordanian and Israeli historical and cultural sites before working for 4 weeks on an archaological dig on tel Megiddo in northern Israel. It should be quite an interesting summer, I do intend to keep the blog going during that trip. If you're interested, check back on June 18th.
