Friday is a lovely day of the week! I must admit that it doesn't make so much difference when life is out of routine, but it's still nice!

We had a refreshing time with our friends from Canada... well, he isn't actually FROM Canada, but that's where we met him. Anyway, it was great, despite some delays in picking them up. We had to drive home from the airport after dark-- 102 km in 5 hours, our slowest trip yet!

Now we are in Manila, getting Kevin some great badminton and enjoying catching up with a few people. I had coffee with a friend yesterday who lives in constant pain. Her faithful furry friend is really sick. And yet her passion for God so inspired me. Again, like usual. Friends are good that way-- they keep us thinking and evaluating and growing. I want to be a friend like that despite my circumstances, yet so often I whine about my life and worry about what's coming next.

Just before we came to Manila we found out that there's a glitch with our papers to leave the country. If things can't be resolved by our flight time, we'll have to change our tickets. We would prefer not to do that, but God knows what is best. It keeps coming back to faith, and that's a good thing.

And now I need to clean up our room a bit and get ready for supper.... just wanted to post a quick update on our travels!
