Thanks and Farewell

It's been just over a week since we returned from Nebraska. Looking back, I now have some perspective on what an incredible trip it was. I'm amazed at how many places we visited and how many people we met in just nine days! I'm incredibly thankful that I had this opportunity to experience rural life, even if it was just for a few days. My life has been enriched by the people and land of Nebraska.

This trip wouldn't have been possible without the generous support and hospitality of the Nebraska Synod and the countless pastors and lay people that we encountered. I can't begin to say "thank you" enough for hosting us in your homes and churches and taking the time to show us around your beautiful region of the country. Not only did you make this trip possible, YOU are what make this trip so special year after year.

Although the title of my post says "farewell," I may pop up here again in the near future to share people's final projects with you. My classmates did some fantastic work, from writing academic papers to constructing devotionals and Bible studies. I hope that I can share these with you at some point.

I've assembled a photo album of our trip to Nebraska. It includes many additional photos not yet posted on the blog, so I hope that you'll check it out.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read along during this journey. I hope that you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Remember that this blog is updated every year, so check back next January for another blogging adventure, same bat-time, same bat-channel.
