After his 2-week trip got extended by a 6-week quarantine, Jason is home! It took one dizzying bus ride to a Peruvian air force base flanked by police cars and military helicopters, a jam-packed flight to Miami, and a total of 25 hours door to door.
Jason and the 3 other volunteers who returned on the same flight were surrounded by coughing passengers and many pets (including an aisle-roaming Basset Hound). Despite the fact that it’s been 2 months since he’s seen our kids, Jason is patiently waiting 2 more weeks while the four returning volunteers quarantine together in Gwen and Ronald’s home.
The crew has been home for a week and they are decompressing more and more each day. Jason and I have been enjoying the pleasant Atlanta spring days “together.” But all of our thoughts and hearts are with the ones in Lima. Even though the group is home, the work continues.
