Such a busy time, with a variety of experiences! We loved our Zone Conference, where we were taught and inspired! We love our leaders and fellow missionaries!
Our good friend Mike K. has talked about a local play he helped write, produce and add his technological talents. After we showed interest in going to it, he let us come to see it. It was performed in a church hall of a small village near here. We had fun visiting with the people at our table, and sharing a bit of village culture!
Lastly, we had a lovely visit with our cousins at Roy and Libby’s home in Malvern. We had a lovely lunch together and shared memories of ancestors, homes, memories…… ‘So fun to be related to such wonderful people!
I’ve thought often that regular tourists might see many more tourist sights–there are so many places of history, culture, antiquity, and nature, that it would take a lifetime to see here– but we are having a unique experience of sharing with real-live “locals,” so to speak– fascinating, lovely people who have given us this rare treat to know them more, to share stories, join their village culture, be in their homes, laugh together, and feel a special kinship! We love it! Cheerio!
