Today we went to the International Festival in Bowling Green. It was neat to see all the diversity represented. We went to the South Korea booth and met several Korean college students who are exchange students at the University. We had a wonderful conversation and enjoyed some Korean grape soda. Chase was hesitant at first to try it, but enjoyed it. We had a nice conversation with one of the students there and since they don't have a family that mentors them here in the states, we are going to meet with them and have dinner when Emma comes home. It was so neat to talk to someone from Korea and learn more about her culture.
Tomorrow the church is having a shower for Emma. My sister-in-law and church friends are coordinating it. I can't explain how blessed we are with such a wonderful church family. From the beginning, our church family has prayed and God has answered our prayers. No one can explain the short timeline and I answer by saying with God all things are possible.
This next week is going to be busy which will help while we wait for our travel call. Ryan's work is having a shower for us Thursday afternoon. Some close friends from school are having a get together on Thursday night...I can't wait! My wonderful teammates are doing something on Friday. I'm not sure what they're up to, but I know whatever it is, it will be awesome! I am in awe at how amazing the staff are at my school. From the first day I arrived, they have offered to help in any way they can and now I have the honor of sharing in this special journey with them. My school family has prayed with me and the love that resonates there is indescribable. Have a great weekend!
