We were all very excited to welcome Katie (a friend from our home church) to Africa this week. Although it was a rough first couple of days for her battling jet lag, Katie has already been a tremendous help. It is great having some extra help around the house and she is eager to learn and experience as much as she can while she is here with us. In her first week alone she traveled out the village with us, ate her first Senegalese meal, learned some French and experienced her first bugs. We know that she will be a tremendous help to us these next six months. We pray also that God would use us and this time to shape and guide Katie as she explores what life holds for her next.
Katie’s bags brought us so many treats. It was like Christmas around here with blessings for each of us, including mine and Tyler’s birthday presents.
We left Dakar and headed home a day early so that we could unpack and get something done around the house. I never realized how relaxing it would be to be home when NO ONE KNEW WE WERE THERE. We got so much done around the house, got rest and felt so refreshed heading into this week. It was just what we needed.
A New Start
Thank you God for all you brought us this week!
