Ya llegamos! We made it!

Sunday morning we woke up around 3:45 to begin our trek to Mexico City. We had spent the night at Leah's grandparents because we flew our of the San Francisco airport. I have to say, this was one of the easiest flying experiences I've ever had. When we arrived there was no line to check in (and we got to check two bags each for free -- something to celebrate these days!). Both of our planes were on time leaving, and both even arrived a smidge early.

Paul (the Spearhead Director here in Mexico City) picked us up from the airport and brought us to our family's house where we will be staying until August. It was so fun to see everyone again, it felt in some ways like we had never left. I think one of the hallmarks of a good friend is someone who you can pick up with easily, even if time has elapsed.

Today we will be unpacking and preparing for the Spearhead leader's training retreat which begins tomorrow at a camp outside of the city. It will be a bit of a whirlwind start, but we look forward to it.

Thanks for all of your prayers that have helped to carry us this far!
