There is a special reason why I did not blog for a whole week. We have special guests from my home country!!!
Dommy and Murni are my friends and fellow missionaries. We met when I was just started learning and getting involved with the work in Indonesia. They visited us for 3 days and we had wonderful time catching up after 6 years not seeing each other.
This trip was Murni’s first time being in States so her husband said that she had to try some different kind of food pretty and experienced the cultural differences.
So we took them to Chipotle after picking them up at the airport.
Dave had to work and our oldest daughter had to go to school for the first 2 days but they were able to enjoy the time together in the afternoon when they came home. Since I cannot drive alone yet (driving student in training…) my mother-in-law and grandma-in-law were able to take us to see some interesting things around where we live, like they got to see the big Ohio River and Portsmouth Mural Wall.
They also had a chance to share what God had been doing in the country through the ministry they do among the people.
And it was the week when almost all the leaves changed color in our area, so we tool them to Shawnee State Park to have lunch and see some colors.
And the last night they were here we had a cook out (hot dogs and chili) and s’mores for dessert. It was a perfect night!
3 days just gone so fast! We had fun time together, encouraged each other with stories and testimonies, most of all we thank God for what he has done in and through their lives.
It is not a “Good Bye,” but it is a “See you soon in the country!”
