Thank you for your prayers and encouragement.
We are happy to announce that we are officially done with our time of French and culture study! Today we threw a big party for our host church. The leaders of our mission came to celebrate with us. Ruth and the ladies prepared a big meal for the congregation. Kris enjoyed using his culinary skills to make delicious cookies for all. It was a nice way to thank the church for their part in helping us learn the culture.
80 people happily consumed 50 pounds of rice, 22 pounds of beef, lots of veggies, 12 gallons of punch, etc. Ruth enjoyed the experience of shopping and preparing the food with the ladies. She was thankful for their knowledge to know how much food to prepare for such a large group.
Please see attached pictures. 1. The ladies used a very large pot to make the large quantity of food. 2 & 3. As soon as the food was prepared, we all enjoyed a bit of it for breakfast before the church service started. Notice they use their right hand to scoop up food, make it into a ball, and pop it into their mouths. 4. The ladies serving with an assembly line of food. Rice, sauce, hot sauce, cookie and a spoon.
Please pray with us that we would have good closure to our relationships here in Kamsar. People won’t be seeing us daily or weekly anymore. After our move we’ll still be coming back once a month to do shopping.
Now we can more fully focus on fixing up the house at the mission center, planning the projects that we’ll begin this summer, and continuing homeschooling.
Love, Kris, Ruth Andrew, Natalie, Caleb & Timothy
