This week Garry is back in the air, checking out an airstrip at one of our locations. He and Joel flew there for the first time yesterday, and the airstrip is great! The work the missionaries and local believers did on the airstrip really paid off! First flights are always somewhat stressful, and we are thankful that everything went well. Today they are back at the same location, doing more practice and checking Joel out on this airstrip. Maybe today he'll take some photos that I can post:).
While we were in the city for the badminton tournament last weekend, we also went to visit Ronald and have a burger. Kaleb made us all laugh, as he often does, "I'm hanging out with Ronald, Mom!" Kevin played well, and ended the tournament with a 4-2 win/loss record. Unfortunately he didn't win, but the play was amazing and he enjoyed himself and learned quite a few things in the process.
One of the blessings of this tournament was time with friends. We stand amazed at the connections God has allowed us to make with various people. We are blessed by them and we pray they see Jesus as we interact and play together.
You may have noticed that I added some photos to the posts below... I feel much better now!
