friends and food

We had the privilege of spending last Sunday afternoon with some old and new friends. Martha and Bryon had us over for lunch. Martha and Moody have been friends since Jr. High, and Bryon's brother, Doug, is married to Maza. Maza is a gorgeous woman that just so happens to be Ethiopian. Maza and her precious mother made us some yummy Ethiopian food for lunch. We loved it. Hill couldn't get enough of the spicy beef dish they made!!

We had so many questions for them, and they graciously answered all of them:) Avery loved trying out her Amharic counting skills! We look forward to continuing our relationship with them-- and partaking of a traditional coffee ceremony next visit!

Thank you!!!


All the kids! Our crew (Issy woke up with some allergic reaction in her eyes), Martha and Bryon's two, Maza and Doug's two, plus a cute nephew.



We have also crossed the week 10 mark. It feels like this sometimes. I'm daily having to put my faith into practice and rest at His feet, trusting in His perfect timing!
