Mush Brain

There is a state of being when you feel other worldly and your brain has turned to mush. I have achieved this state.

I’m sitting in Brisbane’s Domestic Airport waiting a few hours for my flight to Perth. I was up at 3:15 this morning in Papua New Guinea to get ready for my flights. Of course, saying that it was 3:15 a.m. means that it was acually 1:15 a.m. Perth time and while I’ve been living on PNG time since Thursday, I’m now about to head home and so I’ll have to readjust very quickly.

We had an amazing time in and around Port Moresby delivering gifts to the children of a small, poor village and visiting another village which received gifts last year. I was there with a small group as guests of Samaritan’s Purse and their yearly Operation Christmas Child. There is so much I want to write but that will need to wait until my brain readjusts itself.

Stay tuned for some great photos and some video of the trip. You’ll hear from me once my brain begins to operate again.
