Final Post - Friday/Saturday

Early Friday morning we traveled from Donetsk to Amsterdam where we spent the night at the Ibis Hotel. We all had an opportunity to see the city in the late afternoon and early evening.
The Hotel had a shuttle to the airport where we could take the train into downtown Amsterdam. The train was fast and comfortable.
Part of the group went to the flower market to check out the Tulips.
The rest of us went to see the Anne Frank house. It was a moving experience to actually walk up the narrow stairways and visit the "hiding place". The rooms have been maintained in their authentic state but are empty because the furniture was carted away directly after the arrest. Salvaged documents and objects belonging to the eight people who hid there are on display. Videos are played in many of the rooms that tell the story. Even Anne's father was on film telling about her and why he wanted her diary published.
We also managed to walk around the city, visit the souvenir shops, and stop and eat some Weiner Schnitzel (an Austrian dish).
We all were supposed to travel from Amsterdam to Nashville via Detroit on Saturday afternoon. But David and I ended up out of synch again and had to leave mid morning for Nashville via Minneapolis.
Everyone arrived home safe and sound Saturday evening.
This was a tremendous trip. We stayed busy every day imparting the good news of the gospel to both young and old. We met old friends and made many new ones. We give all the glory to God and thank him for allowing us safe passage.
