Watermelon, friends and the weekend

Sunio along the coast of mainland Greece - a wonderful day excursion with friends! The site was hot but interesting, but the beach and watermelon were the best part! Except for the sea urchins of course...

Visiting Sisters

For 10 days I had the priviledge of hanging out with a group from Southwest Hills Church where my sister and her husband attend in Portland, Oregon.

The gals came to help, and encourage and challenge and celebrate.

My sister Anita and Sarah and Angie were troupers from the start. Packing three strollers for the 'babies' on the other side! They were all given or purchased to be passed on to refugees in Athens.
A myriad of summer dresses and outfits were carried to be given to a refugee friend's children.

Meals were eaten in the midst of jet lag and culture shock in the hopes of showing God's love.

A Mexican dinner was prepared for the single missionaries to provide a place of fun and fellowship at no cost to them.

Prayer and praise was prepared for the team as well, to encourage their spirits.

A photography lesson was taught to those interested in learning how to better take shots of the ministry. It was taught by my sister, so of course I thought it was great!!

And still there was a bit of time for that expected touring of the beauties of Greece.

I am so thankful that they came, and were sent. It was a busy and crazy time, but it was a total blast. Thanks girls! Thanks all who sent them! Come again anytime!
