Very Thank-FULL

Thanksgiving and other highlights from the week

sunny 21 °C

Hi! We've had another busy week on the farm, transplanting tomatoes, turning compost, creating plant supports, milking the goat, weeding, mulching, and of course, eating...

Quite the feast

ECHO had Thursday and Friday off as holidays so all the staff and interns got together for a feast and games outside for Thanksgiving on Thursday. Everyone brought something for the meal, David made Roselle tea and lemonade which went down a treat. There was something really special about seeing much of the harvest fresh from the farm as part of the meal. Americans certainly know how to make a meal out of an event! We went to a park yesterday for the daughter of one of the interns, who was celebrating her fourth birthday. Another lovely event with games and food, there seems to be a strong sense of family here, and people have been so welcoming to us. Le Boule

Another highlight was the visit by our roaming Nomadic missionary friend, Graeme, a Tasmanian guy who divides his time between Papua New Guinea, Romania, and visiting Romanians around the world. It was a visit similar to an espresso, short and intense, lots of deeper issues discussed, and we picked his brains on various questions we had about next year. The roaming missionary, Graeme

We enjoyed going to a bonfire at some people's home last night, they had 3 crazy fluffy dogs who could jump really high on their hind legs, and the daughter, Candy, dresses them up in dog t- shirts etc. We went to see Fantastic Mr Fox this week with some of the interns, which was entertaining and well worth seeing! David is currently at the library, making up for lost time and I need to continue with En Route studies... Au Revoir! PS... it seems fitting for a blog about Thanksgiving to verbalise how very thankful we are for the friends and family who have supported us in so many ways, and to our God, who gives all good things. :-) DSC_1971
