Subject: Thankful for Friends!

Today we had a neat experience.  A lovely missionary couple we know here in our town asked to take all of us out for pizza after church.  We left it a surprise for everyone.  The pizza place (Dominos) ended up being extremely crowded, so the couple grabbed the pizza, and we all drove up to their house.  I definetly mean up!  They live not far from us, but on a different mountain, one that our van can not make it up with everyone in it.  So once we came to a place the van couldn't climb, we all got out and started the hike up.  Needless to say, I was pulling up the rear, and was very thankful when the couple pulled up and offered me a ride the rest of the way.   Everyone enjoyed pizza and soft drinks.  Then everyone curled up in their comfy living room and watched a good family movie they had rented.   The boys instantly felt at home, as my family always does at this couple's house.  What a blessing, to have friends that would invite all of us anywhere!   Last week another friend that runs a children's home here also called and invited all of us over for dinner.  I am sure it was the first time anyone had invited all of us to their house for dinner.  She has 15 children there in her home.  There was a lot of spaghetti that night!  And of course the traditional beans and rice that are served with every meal, be it Italian, Parisian, American or Honduran!   We are thankful for friends that make us feel a part of their family also.  Thank you Father for taking care of us and giving us meaningful relationships with special people.
