Immediately after the baptism we hosted dinner at our apartment with the sister missionaries and a neat Chinese family they have been teaching. We really enjoyed meeting Bob, Mary and their son Hans, who we call little Bob. The missionaries wanted to serve an “American meal.” The best we could come up with was hamburgers, chips and ice cream. It turned out well considering that hamburger here is not quite the same as we have had in the past. We enjoyed a short movie and learned they live very close to us.
After a 20 minute walk we met in the home of a delightful family and held a brief meeting. Again we were asked to share our feelings. There was an amazing spirit there. It was tough to leave, but we needed to catch the last bus home. We got home late but very grateful to have these experiences.
Today we will celebrate our second wedding anniversary with a walk by a lake and dinner at an Italian restaurant. We are very blessed to be here and have each other. We were just visited by the most amazing missionaries in the world with some flowers and treats. What a delightful surprise!
