The Haynes family is back in the U.S.-enjoying all the new things and "strangeness" brought by changes in once familiar U.S. life. We are doing well, especially the two youngest, who really haven't been exposed to this "standard" of living. Here are a few photos and comments.
Carpets: Little Berasia spent the first few days giggling, rolling over on the carpets and letting her head "plop" on the floor. We have cement floors in Lichinga, so rolling around like this is not an option. She definitely didn't want any socks on her feet...that would take away the sensation of her toes running through the carpet.
Internet: Unlimited! Yes!
Roads: 2 weeks, and our shoes are still the same color! No mud, or reddish clay dirt!
Food: There's way too much, but mmmm...so good!
Water: There's instant hot water from the tap! No, heating up water on the stove every night!
Dreams and "Faith" Builders: The kids have their eyes opened to a whole new realm of making dreams reality. Grandma and Papa (especially) remind the kids of the toys and "stuff" that's out there-and then, as grandparents do, they bring it within hands' reach.

Friends!!! We have the joy of seeing and connecting with many of our friends here.

We both shared the message with the church concerning faith.
