Beautiful colors, beautiful sisters

Over the weekend we had a fun girls night. On Saturday night all the women on our team here in Yabus gathered in Asule's home with hot and cold beverages and lots of toenail polish. We spent the evening laughing, sharing stories, learning from each other's cultures, and most of all, enjoying each other's company.
Halfway through the evening, I looked around the room and noticed how diverse of a group of friends we are. Here, in the heart of Sudan, in the middle of the continent of Africa, we have 2 Americans, 2 Indians, 1 Nigerian, and 3 Sudanese - living together as friends...and most of all...sisters.
I marveled at how much we love each other and how we feel so much like family. I marveled at how God called each of us and brought us to the same place in Sudan to serve Him together. And I thought about how this is a tiny glimpse of what heaven will be like.

This is what our feet looked like at the end of our "spa." We'd all had foot massages and pedicures. And even though most of our feet are usually calloused and cracked from the heat and dust, I couldn't help thinking of the verse, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news." Rom. 10:15

Just wanted to let you know how much our family enjoys your blog! We've been "following" you and the bridge and your family ever since last fall when my 7 yr. old (Bryson) wrote Eli as part of his AWANA project at the E-Free Church here in Naperville IL.

Now we are wondering what "hard thing" you guys are tackling and how our teen/tween older two boys might enlist support back here to help lighten your load?

Blessings,
Holly
