Right after I finished classes at GIAL we rented a car and drove to Albany, NY. We were able to spend 10 days in the area visiting churches and friends that have been supporting us over the years. It was so good to see so many, but was sorry that we were not able to catch up with everyone that we wanted to.
On the way back stopped in New York City to visit my brother and sister that we have not seen in a few years. As I was with my brother, Mark, we went to visit one of our cousin, Tony Blair, that I haven’t seen in over 20 years. It was a fun reunion. He had just gotten home from work and so at 11:30 PM we are arriving at his door. He did not want to miss the opportunity to see us. It was about 1:00 AM as we were starting back to Mark’s house. From NYC we continued on to Virginia to visit my parents who we saw on our way to New York as well.
