Susan Naylor commented on Evelyn Smith's blog post Now we are 14!
"Remember that Deb Goldfeder saw a team arrive when she was our missioner there for 6 months (in 2006, I think).  She reported that the food got better when the team arrived, among other things."

Lisa Fox commented on Susan Naylor's blog post 2 Advent, 2 time zones
"Amen, Susan.  You especially articulated my thoughts about living in two time zones -- ours and Lui's.  And the more I hear from the missioners, the more I realize that Lui has changed a great deal since I was there in 2006,  I…"

2 Advent, 2 time zones

It is still morning in Missouri, and a cool, grey, drizzelly morning at that. It is evening in Lui, church is over, the end of this trip is approaching, and thoughts are turning to homes in Sweden, England and the U.S.  It is the second Sunday in Advent, the season of "Already" and "Not yet."  In my experience, South Sudan is a very Advent kind of place, very liminal, a place of hope and expectation, with a deep desire for the full coming of God's kingdom. (Anne K., I will always remember you…See More

Susan Naylor commented on Dan Smith's blog post up and limping
"Wonderful to hear from you again! I keep thinking that while the diocesan office lost Electricity, you never lost "Power." This wonderful group of travelers has had a powerful impact in Lui. Thanks for the update."

"True enough, Susan. I remember when we heard almost nothing when our friends were in Lui. In my time there (in 2006), I was able to place one phone call to home.  I'm whining about the loss of messages from our missioners now in Lui ...…"

A posting from Missouri:

A few folks have commented that we have been spoiled by the amazing content coming out of Lui, and how sad we are when the flow of blog posts, pictures and videos is interupted.  How far we have come in just a few years! Travelers from the various parts of our links, Missouri, Sweden, and Blackmore Vale remember when the only communications were through hand carried letters and personal visits.  Then came the satelite phones, followed by a tenuous internet…

Safe at home, goodnight, and amen.

All the team members are safe at our respective homes, with this traveler getting in to St. Louis Lambert Field about 7:00 PM last night local time, only slightly delayed by severe thunderstorms in the area.  After over 24 hours in transit, who knew that the trickiest bit would be landing in St. Louis?  But I arrived safely and was met by my husband Earl, and was suprised to see Bp. Smith also waiting.  Debbie Smith was returning on a different flight at nearly the same time after meeting…
