Travel days

96-dpi-4x6-hmawbi-3Thursday, November 3rd, brother Therman Hodge and I concluded our stint for this year as teachers for the Hmawbi Bible School (from newly screen-printed T-shirts, evidently known lately also as Myanmar Bible College). We taught the last two weeks of the fall 5-week session. Our final act before parting from the tropical oasis was to assemble for a group picture with the student body and staff. Doubtlessly, photos were posted to Facebook and other social media before our taxi was able to painstakingly navigate the one lane, rutted and washed out muddy swath meandering through jungle vegetation back to a hard road.

Therman HodgeLouis RushmoreFriday was a travel day via two jet airplanes from Myanmar to India via Singapore; Silk Air, a regional carrier associated with Singapore Airlines, carried us along for both flights. No hitches, hiccups or delays challenged our forward progress. Neither did we have a long layover; it was almost like we planned the trip that way, and everyone involved in our passage was deliberately on the same proverbial page with us. We couldn’t have asked for more. Approximately nine hours after taking flight from Yangon, we touched down in Visakhapatnam, India. There, we opted to spend the night in a hotel before being retrieved by Indian brethren on Saturday for land travel to Kakinada, India. Both of those cities are on the coastline across the Bay of Bengal from Myanmar. Brother Hodge and I arrived in Kakinada late Saturday afternoon.
