Today I took Michele to meet Luz and her children - I started the study with her 3 weeks ago and Michele is going to look after her for me. She is a sweet lady with lots of problems and so hopefully she takes what she is learning from the bible on. Today she was saying that she believed God had given her a sick son (he seems to be a little retarded but not quite sure if that is his only problem) to see how she would cope - what a terrible way to think about God! Her other son Jonathan is about 7 and the whole time we were there he was cleaning up the kitchen and helping his mother with Pedro - sweet kid. I took them a bible stories book each and Jonathan was so excited to receive it - he went a got a plastic bag to put them in to protect them, which was so cute.
Luz made a funny comment about Mark that has given us a laugh all day - she said to Michele that he translates for me - not that I am wanting to toot my own horn or anything - but that is so not the case - if anything it is the other way around! Anyway Mark loved it!
It is 10.30pm now and we have just arrived home from a very nice Gringo Party where we were the guests of honour. Chad and Michele made Pennsylvanian chili and mashed potatoes - and it was delicious. I feel like bursting - especially after the chocolate cake Kelly brought to the party.
We are very fortunate to have made such wonderful friends here - even if they do get on my case about our accent and kiwi idioms. New word for them tonight was Dozy! No I didn't use it in the context of " You dozy Americans" - we might not be welcomed back if I did that! We sure will miss them all while we are at home, even that dozy guy Goober!
Anyway it's bed time now - that's if I can sleep - I am so excited!
