This trip to Bosnia was short but very targeted and effective. We did so many more things than we shared in the blog. We had many conversations with leaders in Bosnia. We were able to encourage several people. There were a couple of people that were experiencing some real challenges in their lives. I can’t share more but it seemed like we were in the right place at the right time to be friends to some people that really needed it. We all felt the effects of jetlag much more than usual. We all needed a couple of days of downtime to recover. We think we will return in October. We hope to stay longer this time though.
The trip back home wasn’t without its challenges. We experienced flight delays, massive security lines, difficult travelers, seat assignment mix ups, being put on the back row with seats that didn’t recline and our luggage got lost. But, they were just minor inconveniences. Overall, everything was fine. We didn’t land in Houston until 1am. We made it to our host home around 2am. We slept from 3-10am and awoke feeling the effects of jetlag. We decided to go ahead and get up and head toward home. We got showers but since we didn’t have any of our luggage, we couldn’t change clothes, shave, brush our teeth and other niceties. We did some shopping while we were in Houston. We ended up going to several stores and found some good walking shoes on sale that will work better than the ones we wore to Bosnia on this trip. We made it home late on Sunday night. Our luggage didn’t arrive until late morning on Tuesday. It was a good trip and we left feeling like we had made an impact in several lives.
