Days 59 – 60

August 2, 2013

Last night I had big plans to blog…then decided to hang out with our awesome hosts and watch TV instead.  It worked out well, except getting to bed WAY too late.  Oops.

Yesterday we got up and headed out to meet some very special people to us and in our lives in Congo, though they’ve never been…yet.  MAF’s next couple moving to Kinshasa, Kevin and Tasha Spann and their daughter Adah, were in town – they’re from the other side of Tennessee – and we met at a splash park for the kids and then out to lunch.  It was such fun, though I think we discussed more “shop” and “what to bring to Kin” than other stuff.  But, it was still super fun and wonderful to see them.  We were in our initial training together two years ago, where we met, and have kept in touch, for obvious reasons, ever since!

We then headed back to our host’s house and Amelia and I took a long nap.  We had another great dinner with our hosts and proceeded to stay up way too late, as previously mentioned.

This morning we packed up and headed north to Louisville (and, unbeknownst to us, back to Eastern time).  We will be here for a very busy and fun weekend.  Our host has a PhD in food science…so I’m gonna go eat some fantastic-smelling Mexican food…
