Reunion, Weddings, Babies, Birthday Party, Wedding

The last few weeks have been really crazy. Homecoming (New Hope's 25th anniversary) took place the week after we got back. We met lots of old-timers and spent time with people we knew. This last week has also been crazy. On Friday, my parents attended a wedding, or weddings since there were three couples getting married at the same time! And that was after they attended the crusade that was happening at the same church! That day, two New Hope babies were born. And then on Saturday, my dad was busy transporting people to another wedding. Uncle Mulu's brother got married and there were many guests staying at David Family. Catriona, John, and I got to go to Hassan's 11th birthday! Hassan was the first Special Needs kid at New Hope and we say he "started" the Special Needs Program. Many believed he wouldn't live long. And now he's 11! After the party, we headed over to David Family. A big meal had been prepared for the guests. We started eating at 8:30 because they got back from the wedding just a little before that. Needless to say, we're grateful for this day of rest.
