Ten days have flown by. I have spent most of the last 10 days in Indiana visiting my Mom’s family. My grandmother had knee replacement surgery the same day I returned, so Mom and I spent a week with her while she recovered. The surgery went well and she is doing great with her PT. While I was in Indiana, I was able to spend time with my two lovely cousins Rachel and Rebekah. Rachel left for China on the 22nd, and she will be their for the next 6 weeks. She will be teaching English to adults. Please keep her in your prayers over the next 6 weeks.
Being home has reminded me just how slow of a processor I am. Many people have asked me “are you experiencing culture-shock?” “how has your transition been?” and other such questions. I know many missionaries struggle with reentry, but so far I’ve had a smooth transition. Based on passed experience, I know I will process everything in my own time and in my own way. Right now I am simply enjoying this time of much needed rest.
Even from the other side of the world, work still calls my name. This week I have focused on getting final grade cards sent out and a school wish list made. I also still have to order curriculum and make a personal wish list for my return. If you would like to help me with the school wish list you can go to this site. All of the books on this site are needed for our upcoming school year.
I will also be focusing on fundraising while I am home. Because of God’s faithfulness and your generosity, I only need $3,000 to return to the field in August. If you desire to give towards my second term in Kenya, you can make a donation at this website https://www.wgm.org/volunteer/gracewilliams
Thank you to everyone who has supported me through donations and through prayer. I look forward to updating you throughout the summer.
