New Friendships

Tonight we had such a fun experience. Our church (First Baptist Irving) supports a ministry called "His Voice" that reaches out to spread the Gospel to the Sudanese. We got to learn about what is going on over there right now, the work they are doing in villages and the mission work all over Southern Sudan. We were excited to meet Vernon and Amber Burger, the couple that runs His Voice. They have such a heart for the Sudan and ministering to the people there. The best part was getting to meet and speak with Victor, a guy that grew up in Southern Sudan and is living here while he attends college. He works with His Voice, and of course still gets to go back to Sudan to visit his family. After Wednesday night prayer service was over, we got to talk with Victor about tons of stuff. Kiir and Victor spoke in different languages, talked about life over there and we learned so much in just the few minutes Kelly and I were able to listen in. We will definitely be hanging out with Victor again so we can learn more...and Kiir and Victor can hang out. I think he enjoyed talking with someone he could relate to! Also, Victor said he'd teach me how to cook some Sudanese food so I'm stoked about that!

On another note, this weekend we get to travel to Brownwood for my grandmother's 75th birthday celebration! We are excited to introduce Kiir to more family members and show him where I grew up and spent my childhood holidays. It was be a special time and also will be our first family road trip! Fun times ahead...
