. . . that have happened since I last updated
Which, lets face it, has been awhile:
Today I got stuck in an elevator.
It was a surprisingly enjoyable experience.
PLC bought a new car.
I miss the Patrol (aka The Beast)
But thanking God for providing.
I rode the Sulaymaniyah bus.
Payment for the ride is driven by the honor system.
I’m convinced it would never work in America.
My friend, Sazgar, helped me pick out Gili Kurdi (traditional/festive Kurdish dress)
Don’t worry, pictures to come.
I experienced culture shock for the first time at a foreigner’s party.
50 people attended (Dutch, British, Irish, Australian . . . but mostly American)
I realized Americans are loud and a tad bit obnoxious.
I visited Sulaymaniyah University with Kanar and Shaza, two good friends.
I almost felt as though I was at an American university.
I learned to sing Happy Birthday in Kurdish.
Angel and I made oreo balls.
I sat on the top floor of our house for hours watching a thunderstorm with the window open.
I’ve missed the rain.
I bought a piece of artwork from my good friend and talented artist, Ismail.
I’ve read 5 books:
Unshaken by Francine Rivers
Unveiled by Francine Rivers
The Shack by William P. Young
A Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis
Crazy Love by Francis Chan
God has been teaching me a lot about faith and prayer
and even more about my pride.
AND 3 new kids are going to surgery in Turkey on Tuesday!!
I’ll introduce them in the next few days
