Our team, or most of it, returned safely to Vancouver on Sunday afternoon. (Leith had returned home to Denver a day or two early on a family matter. Skye has now been joined by her husband Chris, and they are spending several days together in Thailand.)
There will be at least one more email to everyone, once the jet lag fog starts to clear just a little. For now, we wanted to thank you for your support , for your prayers, and for accompanying these ladies on their journey in your own way. Returning home is always challenging--around here we call it "culture grief"--and our friends and loved ones will need time and space to process what they have seen, and to put some thought into how it has changed them as individuals, living their lives here in North America. Don't worry, they'll share when they're ready, but we'll need to be patient!
Mike Todd, on behalf of the team
