Bye for now, friend!

Our friend is from another country, but is a student here. She is heading back to her home for about 5 months for an internship. She and her family have become our very good friends, housing us every weekend when we travel to the city that she studies in. She spent her last night in this country with us (our city has the international airport in it). We went out to dinner with some other friends and had an excellent time. It was bittersweet, but we look forward to her return. She'll be back before Christmas! Lift her up as she continues to seek Him while there.





In other news...

A team of ladies from SOUTH GEORGIA (!) just came to do some volunteer work, and they held a get-together for the women in our city. The ladies are from Preston, Georgia, and it was fun to be able to talk about our "neck of the woods" with each other. They brought us some American goodies, magazines and great fellowship. Here's a picture of me and the ladies. I'm holding The Georgia Magazine that features an article about my hometown's folk-life play, Swamp Gravy (see www.swampgravy.com).
