Fun times with the Woodcreek ladies

IMG_6066We picked up the ladies from the airport Sunday afternoon and headed to Subway to grab a bite to eat. Several of them were even able to order on their own, which, as some of you may know, is a huge accomplishment when you don’t speak the same language as the person who is taking your order.

IMG_6067After dropping luggage off at the guesthouse, we headed to the market, as this would be the only opportunity to do so while they are here. We split up into three groups (Group Chase, Group Paul, and Group Julie). I don’t mean to brag, but I’m pretty sure everyone wanted to be in my group. (Possibly because Paul is still trying to get a grasp on the language. And Chase? Well, Chase has never been much of a shopper. It could be those things, or it could be that I’m awesome-er. Yeah, must be that.)

IMG_6075 After the market, the ladies had a few minutes to rest and unpack at the guesthouse, and then they came over to our house for dinner! We had tacos/taco salad, mostly prepared by Kristina (thanks for doing all the dirty work Kristina!), and yummy brownies prepared by Paul. They were only slightly burned :) and they tasted wonderful. (Thanks for slaving over the brownie mix Paul!)

IMG_6074All the Russells and Paul really enjoyed seeing their old friends again and making some new ones. Beckett really enjoyed dancing and showing off his famous “spin-move” in front of a room full of ladies enamored by him! We are all so thankful for the partnership God is creating between Woodcreek Church and Nicaragua, especially Dave and Kristina who prayed for this to happen when they moved down here over 2 years ago! God is so good and faithful in answering the desires of our hearts!
