and so it begins

Today we depart on our journey. The group of 25 leaves from San Francisco tonight on a red-eye to Washington, D.C. At the airport we'll gather and distribute some of the items we're transporting to Rwanda - choir robes, books, school supplies and shoes - and also do a bit of group building and a prayer with families before heading through check-in and security.

Our flight to Kigali leaves Dulles Sunday evening, so we will spend the day in D.C. One small group will be visiting the Holocaust Memorial Museum, and other small groups will be resting or touristing, or both. We are lucky to have access to showers Sunday afternoon, so many will refresh that was as well. I'm not sure what I'll be doing in D.C., but it's a city I greatly enjoy, so anything is fine, really. The forecast is for hot and muggy - typical weather for this time of year, but we'll make the most of it, I know.
