They’re HERE!!!!!

Meet my new friends, Stella and Mary. Mary is from Kenya and Stella is originally from Sudan but now lives in Kenya. All 13 of the women from Amani arrived last night from Dallas with pink cowboy’s hats and lots of luggage. They were teaching us how to “line dance” and greeted us with smiles and hugs. It was a fun night.

This morning we are headed out to the big city of Charlotte for a tour. Our first stop will be the Proverbs 31 Office where we are having a “tea.”

I’ll post more tonight. Will you pray for our day – no rain, lots of laughter and sweet fellowship with our new sisters!
