Today we return back to the United States. I believe we are all filled with a variety of emotions. As we honored Jehad, our skillful and kind hearted bus driver, and Moath, our servant-hearted companion from JUST, I found myself feeling misty eyed. I am not sure what the future holds, But I am confident that our partnership with JUST will only grow from here and hope that our paths cross again.
As I prepare to return to the U.S., I look forward to being able to speak to the group of students who will be traveling to Jordan in May and stirring their excitement and dispelling their fears and anxiety. I am excited for the great learning experience and fun that awaits them. Moreover, I look forward to working on plans for ongoing cooperation with JUST and opportunities to share more details of my experience in Jordan with my friends, family, and colleagues. This has been a trip of a lifetime and one I will surely never forget.
