At this moment I am in Denver, Colorado, USA. I’m here to visit friends and supporters and possibly raise new ones.
Today I went to the school of one of my smallest friends, Emily Gallagher of 6 years old. In her class they had been learning about the Netherlands lately and their teacher wanted me to share about my home country, the language and me myself. I loved hanging out with these kids and sharing about our windmills, tulips and canals and also telling them that I am a missionary in my own country and what that looks like. I told them about all the kids of their age that I have seen around the world and all of them need the love and care of God. The kids were excited and especially Emily enjoyed having me over.
After I was done talking it was lunch time. She said, ‘are you gonna stay over for lunch with us?’ I told her I had to go and have lunch at home. But she really wanted me to stay. She said, ‘I’ll split my sandwich with you!’
Tomorrow night we will have a little gathering of friends of the family I’m staying with to share about what God has been doing in our lives and about our vision for the next few years.
