My time in Sofia came quickly to an end. Biss and I were able to spend a little while together Monday evening. The last day is always the hardest. The weather had turned cold and it began to snow just before we met. Based on the forecast, I was concerned about getting out the next morning. The traffic on the way to the airport was horrible as people navigated the six inches on fresh snow. Though I arrived less than an hour before my flight, I was in time. The cattle class check-in lines were closed, but I was able to use the alternate line. Thankfully, the de-icing process though appearing a bit primitive was successful and the flight was only about an hour late. The flight was otherwise uneventful, and I got settled into my place in Prague in time to do some work and exercise my culinary skills.
The open doors in Sofia are amazing. Biss sees this, but also understandable feels the pressure it puts on him to make wise choices and make good use of the opportunities hemispheric afforded. I have a lot of confidence in him handling it well. Please keep him as well,as,the rest of the Christians in your prayers.
