Bangladesh: Finally home.

I woke up at 6am. This is unusual. This is only unusual because I want to bed at 12:00am last night.

My evenings have been filled with Badminton, 5 crowns, lots of laughing, hugging kids and last night we watched the Olympic opening games!

Bangladesh I will be leaving you soon, and even as I type that I get a sickening feeling in my stomach. I will miss you more than I have ever missed anything in my life. You have become my life, you have shown me a new way of thinking, you have helped direct me to know a bigger greater, grander God then I could have ever imagined. It seems surreal that soon I will not be waking up to roosters crowing in my back yard, greeted by a 104 kids every morning: I will miss every part of you.

Here I have found true Joy: I have LIVED NOW with TRUST and Joy and I am so thankful for all that you have blessed me with. Bangladesh I have a little more time with you and I am going to savor every minute of it.
