The logest day of my life! 39hrs...


Yesterday I flew 16.5 hrs and now I'm back in the good old U.S.A!

Yes, yesterday was the longest day of my life. I awoke at at 5:00am and left for the air port in Jakarta. I then flew to Hong Kong (4hrs & 15min.) Then after a short lay over it was back on a (big) plane for a 12hr & 15min flight to California! For this flight I left Hong Kong at 4:15p.m. and arrived at 2:20p.m. the same day here in California! The time change is massive between Indonesia and California, Indonesia is 15 hrs ahead! So yesterday my 24 hr day slowly turned into a 39hr day!!!

Pray that my adjustment goes well being back in the United States. My trip to Indonesia was very informative and I'm so glad that I went. Now I have a few days to enjoy some family & friends before heading back to my family who I dearly miss!

He is worthy,
~Ben
