Our apologies for this late post -- we were having issues accessing the blog. Shouldn't be a problem now. Stay tuned for an additional post before bed tonight!
Our adventure began today at 3am when the alarm buzzed to signal the start of this new opportunity. After a quick shower and an even quicker “Garber Household” overview for PJ, we were off... Likely the earliest flight out of Sky Harbor, we zipped from Phoenix at 5:30am, landing in Charlotte in time for lunch.
We rested and munched at the Fox Sports Grill (not recommended, although our server, Alicia, was very kind) and lamented that we could not enjoy the World Cup Championship, as the match began at 2:30, and our flight to Harrisburg took off at 2:38...
We were greeted at the P.A. Airport (which is not coated in Hershey's Chocolate, contrary to popular belief) by two lovely Discipleship Center representatives who kindly shuttled us to our temporary home.
After arriving at the Discipleship Center, we explored the massive house and rested, anxiously awaiting the arrival of our mission mates- Jana of Pennsylvania and Angela of Indiana.
While feasting from the “Leftover Fridge,” we fellowshiped with our new friends and I later learned the Mennonite pastime of Dutch Blitz, of which I am slowly getting the hang of.
We ended our day with an opportunity to share our testimony with one another, hoping to grow closer together and closer to God. Finally, after a heart-felt prayer, we said goodnight. I'm excited to see this adventure unfold.
