Homeward Bound

My flight back home left a day earlier than Pastor Ferry and Deaconess Sandra. The Lutheran Church in the Philippines (LCP) graciously purchased a bus ticket back for the five-hour drive from Baguio City to Manila. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, having heard plenty of fascinating stories about transportation on the mission field in various places. But this was a nice bus.

My seat in the back of the completely full (but not over-full) bus gave me a good perspective on things. Except not much happened. We made the drive in just over four hours which was a pleasant surprise and in no small part due to the drivers’ expertise hurtling down the mountains to the relative safety and straight roads of the rice plains.

Tomorrow I head back to Kuala Lumpur and then back to Medan and my family. It’s been a good visit and I look forward to hopefully being back in Baguio City at the end of May for their graduation ceremony, and perhaps in August to teach two weeks of theological intensive courses before their fall quarter begins. Exciting to begin planning, trusting in the Lord’s perfect timing in these and all things.
