Week 2

Week 2 has not been nearly as exciting and interesting as week 1. So I have not been as consistent at writing.

I have been at my Grandma's house in El Dorado since Monday. Monday, Tuesday, & Wednesday I spent helping my aunt Cindy and uncle Phil work on a presentation about the need of New Tribes Missions in West Brazil. They had a conference that they had to go to this weekend and had asked for my help. It was fun to use some of my office skills to help them. We finished the projects and they headed out Thursday morning.

On Tuesday night I was able to go visit some college roommates in Wichita. I had so much fun visiting with Brenda and Clayton and their three adorable children. (picture coming soon) It is hard to believe how fast time flies. It really just feels like it was the other day that we were staying up late at night in the dorms procrastinating on our homework.

After lunch with Grandma and uncle Rodney on Thursday, I headed to Sterling and the home of a college roommate, Jan. It was a nostalgic drive through the farm land of central Kansas. And I have decided the highways are much more interesting than interstate. On my way to Sterling: I saw a bearded Mennonite man in a straw hat cross the four lane highway with his horse and wagon (always picture-esk). The vibrate green of the sprouting winter wheat next to the brown fall colors of the milo fields, made for a dramatic contrast. And the birds, I forgot how many birds there are here, swooping in and out of the fields.

I had a fun evening catching up with Jan and Kevin, getting to know their two boys. (picture coming soon ) What a blessing to be able to see so many friends on this trip and meet their families.

I am now officially jealous and homesick.

Praise God for the Amber Waves of Grain!

Can't wait for all of those people pictures, too!
