The last 24 hours have been quite an adventure- I, for one, can’t believe we’re finally here!
We left Augsburg at 9:00 last night, and as we passed through moonlit Minnesota, Iowa, and some of Illinois, most of our eyelids were heavy with sleep, dozing off as we got used to the bus. Morning brought us a beautiful sunrise, and a stop for breakfast at McDonalds. Back on the bus we went, driving through Indiana before stopping in Ohio for lunch. Countless fields of corn and herds of cattle greeted us along the way. Sometime in the afternoon, we crossed into West Virginia, and started seeing the beautiful rolling hills that would eventually become the Appalachians. We were able to see the sunset in between the mountains as they got steeper and more heavily covered in trees; and we arrived in Lewisburg just before nightfall.
Through six states, with the help of several movies, many naps, snacks, stops, and all of the wonderful people with us, we made it here. Learning a little bit more about what we’ll be doing and who we’ll be helping has made us so excited about being here. Now, it’s off to get some rest before tomorrow- it’s sure to be a packed day!
