Living in community

We are starting to have sunny days and are seeing some wonderful signs of spring!



The community life here is very different than in Niger! The community consists of many other girls my age! It has been so refreshing to spend time with all of them! 


A few of us have been doing some kind of dancing/exercising class (I know - get your laughs out now.. my coordination is still terrible) :-) But it has been a blast to do something active with other gals my age :-)


No matter what the activity, from studying, to eating, to shopping, you can always find someone to do it with! Going to new churches and new places, it is wonderful to not have to do it alone :-) I am thoroughly being blessed and loving every minute here!


There are not actually many Americans here. I spend most of my time with Norwegians, Brazilians, and a few others from Switzerland, Germany and England. The best part is that French is pretty much always the language of communication, which helps us all implement what we are learning in class! 


So thankful for good friends and the Lord is truly helping my capacity to learn French also! I learn (or unlearn ;-) something new each class session. Thank you all so much for your prayers and support - I am so incredibly thankful and blessed to have this opportunity!
