After struggling with some technical issues in the changing of my site, I think it is finally ready to go. The trip was successful if not uneventful. After eight hours of delays, I arrived in Prague with my suitcases in tow. All in all, no complaints. After bringing me to the flat, Honza and I had a good talk about the work as well as a few Bible questions. At some point, apparently, I was about to doze off, after an even extra-long trip, so he made he way home. My accommodations are adequate for a couple of months while I am finding something more permanent for us. The first week was a blur that I can only now reflect on a little more clearly thanks so to some photos. It was strange, in a good way, to need to be doing some domestic things to get settled. That included dealing with my visa with the foreign police. The days flew by as I worked to prepare for the upcoming lectures and the arrival of the Americans who were coming to teach. The Ward’s arrived on Friday, and Jonathan Banning got here on Saturday. I felt badly in some ways that I only had two Bible studies of my own as I took care of these responsibilities as well as began looking for a place to live, but I knew the time was still well spent.
So glad you arrived safely…and the others who came to join you! Am anxious to begin hearing (and seeing) the work progress in the coming weeks/months.
