Over a 9-hour stretch yesterday all 21 students safely returned from their service assignments to Casa Goshen in Lima. The house filled with sounds of joy as each successive returning group entered and was welcomed by friends they had not seen for six weeks (although it seemed like an eternity). Students shared service stories and experiences, turned in homework assignments, and repacked suitcases for a 3-day retreat this weekend. At the retreat students will present assignments they did on service and prepare for some reverse culture shock as they return to the U.S. early next week. We will post another blog entry yet from the retreat.
