Visit from the Sojoels
Traci and I invited my old host family over for supper last night and had a blast! We had wanted to do this for quite some time, but it was too hard with a house full of volunteers. Including us and Matt, their current house guest who’s working at the hospital, there were 12 at the dinner table. The young boys were energetic and excited to be visiting for supper, and everyone was eager to try out our coconut curry, deviled eggs, pumpkin bread and monster cookies. We said a prayer before the meal, then they surprised us by singing a praise song in celebration of our gathering. Unlike what we often hear from town at night, it sounded wonderful. After the meal there was a lot of talking, sipping tea, and as always with this family- laughing. We invited them back during the day so they can swim and relax, and we look forward to more time together.
