Greetings from East Asia!! It has been warm and really humid here. We are told this humidity and frequent rain are unusual. Summer gets rain here just like we do at home, but the rains have lasted a little longer and are occurring more frequently than the norm. Here is a picture of one of the lotus plants.
We continue to enjoy meeting and spending time with the local people. It is still surprising to be in a restaurant and meet someone who speaks English. While we have obviously had a lot of typical food here,
we have also found some good Mexican food!
It is also nice to have conversations and learn more information about this community! The transit system here is very good – there are several ways to get around town, and buses run frequently. We have visited several local attractions and have even seen some beautiful handcrafted silverwork.
There honestly is so much to experience here. Although we experience many things different in this culture, we recognize that much is the same as ours. There are many lonely, hurting, hopeless people throughout our world. Open your eyes and see who may need you to share hope with them. Nevertheless, there is much joy in this adventure! Looking forward to all the Father has planned while we are here. Keep lifting us up to the Father, as well as those we are meeting as we continue this amazing journey!
