First off we just wanted to 'thank you' for your prayers for us these last full weeks. Looking back one of the the best parts of our last few weeks has just been feeling healthy again! With that in mind we have been able to rejoice with being back into relationships/ministry/
language learning/family with full energy and excitement! One of the high lights these last few weeks has been watching the world cup with some of my friends here. The final game was really fun/interesting in that I was invited to a neighborhood party/get together to watch the game from 1:00am to 4:00am. It was a blast though in that many Indonesians from that neighborhood come out to watch and even though it took me a good 2 days to recover I think it was worth it!
Today’s ‘high light’ IS Ruth’s birthday! Our day today started with an Indonesia friend of Ruth’s sms’ing her at 6:00am to wish Ruth a blessed and long life. Ha! We should really never be surprised at some of the things that happen here. :) All in all we had a really fun day and enjoyed some spaghetti (Ruth’s favorite) with some other missionary friends (who we will dearly miss!) who are moving from our town this week.
