Greetings from Panama!

Finally I have arrived in Panama, the last 2 flights weren't so bad, I got lots of rest in uncomfortable seats and on airport floors. Luckily I was able to find all my gates in time, it wasn't too hard although the Houston airport is quite big, and very beautiful I might add. The flight to panama wasn't long just 3.5 hours. I was sleeping most of the time so I didn't get my immigration and declaration forms! Luckily I was able to somewhat communicate with customs and immigration and it was pretty easy. As the plane arrived in panama I got a very scenic view of the coastline filled with tall skyscrapers, reminded me of home. John and his wife and kids met me at the airport then we drove 40 minutes to the base. The base is quite small only a few buildings and I think I am defiantly in culture shock, its gonna be hard to get used to. I'm living in a room with 6 other girls from my program and 10 others who are here for outreach from another base. School starts tomorrow with breakfast at 7am!! (4am our time.) and worship at 8:30. Please continue to pray that I get used to it here because I am feeling a little homesick.

miss you all.
