Fifteen students and one instructor have been eagerly anticipating today for many months. Out-of-state students are returning from California, Washington, Iowa, Illinois (3 from greater Chicago area) and New Jersey, and in-state students will be arriving from their homes in central or west Michigan. Everyone is persevering in their travels through artic cold and lake-effect snow showers, hoping our anticipated air travel this evening is on time and safe. It’s hard to believe that this time tomorrow, we should be checked in to the YHA London St. Paul’s Hostel in Central London, 3,834 miles from Calvin College and Grand Rapids, Michigan. Here’s praying for safe travels to Grand Rapids, and air travels from Grand Rapids to Chicago, and Chicago to Central London. May God bless both us with safety in our adventures and all our loved ones who we leave behind!
