New Land, by Caleb Chung
When the migrant bride steps outside the airport, she is greeted by the tallest tree she’s ever seen (‘palm tree’). California is so foreign, so big, so far away from her homeland. Her new husband smiles and welcomes her to his town, but she has never felt more out of place. But on Sunday, she sees the cross of her husband’s church. She hears the familiar hymns and prayers, part of her cherished faith tradition. She finally feels at home, because God is always near.

God is indeed with us wherever we go.

Bye, Bye, homesickness. Nicely told, Caleb.
