My trip around the world came to the end yesterday at 5:00pm. It was a 21 hour flight with a 1hour layover in London. I will tell you as a dad there is no better feeling than opening your front door to the sounds of little feet running at you. Champe was there to greet me with a huge hug and an “i love you daddy.” Thank you for the many prayers and kind words you shared with me on my trip. It was a lot of fun and at the same time i was able to capture some video that will really bring a piece of what God is doing in India home.
I will be honest this was the first big trip i had gone on since my fathers death, and along the trip i could not help but stop and say wouldn’t it be great if my dad saw this. One of those moments was a stop at one of the highest points in Chennai. It is a known as St. Thomas mount, and is widely believed to be the place Thomas was martyred from. (Thomas was one of the 12 disciples) As you stood out you truly took in the whole city and as I reached down to pick up i rock, i pictured my dad giving a lecture to a group of students on the geology of the region. I miss you dad.
I will try to unpack more of the trip in the days to come but for now i could not be more happy to see Melissa, Eli, and champe. Bear with me as i look through the hours of video and the hundreds of pictures from a trip that truly changed my life.
