Angie and I hit U.S. soil at noon on Monday when we landed at O’Hare airport. Once home we enjoyed dinner with our families and hit the sack. Wow…jet lag is a killer!
Our events in Vienna and Budapest were wonderful. Angie said it was fascinating to watch the audience, especially in Hungary. The ladies clung to every word. They are so hungry for encouragement.
There were dozens of conversations with moms about everything from their hearts being broken by wayward children to struggling with the everyday challenges of raising young children. One mom in Hungary was so exhausted. She came in carrying a newborn and said she had two at home. She said she came so empty but left so full. That makes it worth it all!
Here are some pics from the Vienna event:
The funny thing was that my customs guy was so intent on listening to the conversation between Jill and her customs officer that he didn’t even ask me any questions. Just stamped my passport and let me go through.
Another powerful memory was when we sang worship songs in Vienna. They would start out in English (on Powerpoint) and then switch verses to German. Then the chorus would be in both English and German so you would hear 130 moms singing in two different languages praising God all at the same time. It was so powerful that Jill and I both were very emotional.
