The Bird Has Landed


After a quick round of sushi in Dulles’ A-Terminal, Joseph and I boarded our non-stop flight to Geneva.

Surprisingly (and refreshingly) empty, I was able to stretch out in the middle section and sleep for 5 hours – always a plus when traveling East and trying to catch up on the time change.

Upon arriving, we were picked up promptly by Stephan – a wonderful husband, father of 2, and musician. He weaved us through mountain tunnels and along stunning lake-vistas bathed in the glow of the rising sun.

We’re sitting tight at our host home, then playing at La Chapelle de Clarens this evening for what I expect to be a refreshing night of worship and teaching among these beautiful people. ch:

    Stunning photography, C! As un temps fantastique a la Suisse. Et toi et Joseph, mangez beaucoups des poissons (qui s’appelle “sushi”) dans ta voyage! Je sais que tu et Joseph travailles pour Dieu en Europe avec tous vos force. Excellente!

    • Christopher Hopper

      Il a mange trop de sushi hier soir! Ooo la la! Regarde les photos du ce matin. Et du vin? Ou est toi?! :)

    • Christian Fahey

      Oh la la! Les photos sont magnifiques. Quand je les regarde, j’ai ces mots dans ma tete: “We all came out to Montreux, on the Lake Geneva shoreline, to make records with a mobile…” Ah, des souvenirs d’un vielle “rocker”. As un jour magnifique, mon ami!

      Love it!
