In about 45 minutes I leave for the airport in Boise, Idaho. I can't wait to finally be back together with my family!
Back on January 6th I left them in Oregon, as I returned to Indonesia for several weeks of flying, before returning to MAF headquarters in Nampa, Idaho for several weeks of training. Here's the group picture of this year's IP's (Instructor Pilots) that went through the training seminar, along with the MAF training department's flight instructors that taught the course.
It was a very interesting seminar, and I was privileged to be a part of it. It was also a blessing to have the chance to interact with guys from other programs throughout the world. It's always encouraging to hear first hand what MAF is doing in some of the most remote places on earth.
And speaking of remote places, we're excited to be returning to Indonesia (as a family this time), this weekend. We'll be leaving Oregon this Sunday, February 21st, and arriving in Tarakan on Wednesday, February 24th. If you think about it, please pray for us during the travels. It will obviously be a looong trip, but we're looking forward to getting back "home". Hopefully no one will get sick this time, and we won't miss any flights!
As an added bonus, it would be sweet if all of our luggage shows up without incident in Tarakan, at the same time we do. :)
