Tim Hawkins on Air Travel:
I’m back home from South Africa. I’m trying to get acquainted with life in the States and adjust after the holiday. Hopefully, blogging will be back up soon amidst looking for jobs, getting ready for my wedding, and trying to see people I’ve missed for the past year.
For the next three weeks I’ll be on holiday (as my South African friends would say). Later tonight, I’ll start a 36-hour journey back to Nebraska.
Carly and I will get to spend some much-desired time together. I’m super pumped about this, if you couldn’t guess. We haven’t seen each other since January 6. It has been a hard, yet joyous 5+ months apart, and such a learning experience. It’s going to be a delight to see her. Also, my sister gets married on June 27, and I am the best man in my friend Matt Meschke’s wedding on July 3.
I’m going to take these weeks away from blogging. (Please, hold your tears.) For you three faithful readers out there, you’ll be pleased to know that I have a couple friends who will be posting from time to time in my absence. Let me introduce them to you.
- Jordan Esmay studies ELED at the University of South Dakota. He’s from the booming metropolis of Murdo, South Dakota, and he is married to Julie. Jordan loves dancing and reading, and he is a fan of St. Augustine and Mike Huckabee.
- Andrew Reiners graduated from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln with a business administration degree. He currently works as a family assistant with Owens Associates in the greater Lincoln area. Andrew loves coffeehouses, Alaska, and rap music, and he’s passionate about not wasting his life.
I hope you find their posts edifying, inspiring, and good for a laugh. Lord willing, I’ll be back sometime around July 8.
I’ll be in Durban for the next week at a conference, so blog posts might be down a bit.
Durban is known for its Zulu Rickshaws, beachfront hotels, and internationally renowned Sharks rugby team. I don’t know if I’ll get to ride in a rickshaw (though I am a Seinfeld fan!). No rugby either, but our hotel will be 100 yards from the sand. Hopefully, during free time I’ll be able to get rid of my farmer’s (aka “pastor’s”) tan.
Pray for closeness with Jesus, safety, a teachable heart, and, of course, fun.
