Last night I was invited to my friend, Jackie’s house, for a get together dinner with her team who recently went to Botswana. The cherry on top was that another friend, who was a missionary at LBOM too, was also coming. Their family actually now lives close to where my parents live, so we were able to carpool up to Grand Rapids.
I was able to see her 3 kids again and spend time talking about our stint in Bots. I also got to see pics and videos of the team’s trip there. It was such a lovely night…not to mention the awesome food Jackie made!
On the ride home, Patricia and I talked about our time in Africa and what we missed (and didn’t miss). It was really nice to be able to share with someone who truly “understands” and who shared some of the same experiences I had. It was so wonderful to hear how she was doing and see the kids getting soooo much bigger! Thanks, Jackie…for bringing us together again!!!
