The following took place from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Supper! Why is it I am always writing about food? Because it is so good out here! We were taken for dinner to a local restaurant and as we walked in we were greeted with a few familiar faces. There were a number of the students who are a part of our scholarship program, that we met earlier in the week as well as a graduate. Not to mention their families showed up as well. Not too mention that a number of people from the local church showed up. Mark and I estimate that there were about 60 people there tonight. We talked and laughed and I heard from parents just how much they appreciated how your gifts have contributed to the well being of their children and ultimately their families.
Tonight is touching as you genuinely feel the appreciattion for all that YOU have done!

I had the opportunity to phone John E while he was at hockey and he talked with our interpreter who was THRILLED to talk to someone in Canada. Our interpreter has a radio show in which he uses to teach people English. After numerous pictures we have finally made our way back to the hotel only to be up and ready by 6 am for church. Hopefully that should not be a problem for us since we don't sleep through the night. Mark is worried about getting breakfast before church, but I know we will be doing breakfast after church. FOOD! I wonder if Mark's wife is aware as to how much this guy eats?

Until we eat, I mean meet, again!
