They are on their way home!

The students all arrived safely in Thies from their service assignments on July 26.  After a day of reconnecting with each other and their Thies families we boarded the bus for the final retreat at the beach.  The weekend was delightful.  Students presented their projects, talked a great deal, and enjoyed the beautiful setting.

Alex was the first student to leave for a trip to East Africa.  We said goodbye to him at noon on July 30 and about 4 hours later the remaining students left for the airport. They departed for Brussels on time.  We will miss them.  They were a pleasure to work with this term. It was our privilege to have known these fine people.
