Musical chairs and hot potato....

So, today was crazy, we went to an all girls madrasa (schools that only teach islam) and checked out their needs. Most of the girls lost family in the earthquake and cannot take care of themselves, so we are going to use food and such things to get our foot in the door. It was interesting and we will be going back later this week.

Then, after that experience, we went to a "party" for our aerobics instructors 25th wedding anniversary.
(Yes, I did say aerobics and it is just like an 80's videos!)
Well, we played "musical chairs" and hot was hilarious. You have never lived until you play musical chairs with such lively childlike women!!! Well, then being the goofy foreigner that I am...I was picked to perform center stage. they started to play techno music and called me into the middle of the circle to DANCE for them.
I wish I was what do you do in front of Muslim women.....booty dance?
those are the only moves I know other than disco I was at a loss and made an idiot of myself! I wish you all would have been there to see it....

Marvelous life in South Asia!

There are so many things that have happened since my last blog....

Firstly, I moved to another country.
Secondly, I am learning a new language.
Thirdly, I have to cover my head EVERYDAY!

I have yet to experience culture shock in a big way, but a lot has changed since I walked
across the border. I love many things about this place- the woman and children, the food, the mountain view from my balcony, the cool night breeze and my own car with a driver included.

it has been overwhelming, yet I am at such peace and feel the presence of the Father in such a real way!
