Thank you so much for your prayers, love and support. Our group has prayed, reminisced, hugged and celebrated life together.
Annie left for home this afternoon and will meet some of her family in Toronto early tomorrow morning. She was able to sleep last night and had many phone calls from home. Her grandsons are anxious for her to come home and she misses them so much. We sent her off with a framed photo enlargement of Peter smiling and riding a bike at the last farm we visited together on Friday. She hugged it tight as she stood in the window of the hotel when we pulled away on the bus early this morning. It felt like we were riding out of her life and she was even more alone. One of the tour director´s stayed with her and accompanied her to the airport later in the day. She is so strong and we pray that God will hold her very close in the days ahead.
Tomorrow is our last full day together. We have some free time to shop and will take one more tour in the afternoon. The rest of the group is leaving for the airport at 4 a.m. on Wednesday and we will catch the ferry to Uruguay later in the morning.
Partings are always bittersweet but we have wonderful new friends and the world of email will keep us connected. I will definitely share more stories and photos once we are home.
P.S. We checked out new laptops today :)) And I haven´t had any time to check blogs but I promise to do that too once we are home. I miss hearing your news.
Love you all!
