a taste of back home

though we have settled nicely here in SA,

this week has been long anticipated as
Joe's best friend from back home arrived....

and he came bearing American treats. this is just a glimpse of the loveliness. oh, how happy our hearts.

we have enjoyed the past few days hanging
with a friend as close as a brother (which Joe happens to have 3 of back in TN) .

and today,
we welcomed 2 more friends from our SS class back in TN
and who are amazing supporters of ours.

and this weekend,
we will welcome a whole crew of friends
as they jump over the pond to serve along side us this week.

exciting. i can not wait to hug me some TN necks:)

God is working amazingly in our lives and we are so blessed.

sidebar:) i have had 2 meetings this week about my role in ministry here and i am over the top fired up!
