For all that read this Blog! Go back and reread because I just learned how to go back an edit all those mistakes I typed! I just push that publish button without editing! Ha, now I can go back and wipe out those embarrassing mistakes! Just to let you know that the auto write on this computer wrote pastures wife instead of Pastor's wife! What a crack up! I laughed for a good 15 minutes over that one.
Today was blissful!
It was Elder Isufaj's Birthday. The missionaries from Korce came: Whilley and Olsen, Divkovich spelled terribly wrong I will correct it later with my new found edit button, and Elder Holding who is sooo sick that I wanted him to just take a nap the poor dear! Gave him some vitamin C packs and some Sudafed if he wanted to use them.
We had the self reliance experts ( Matt Mathius from France) come today. Woo Hoo! Got to speak French Today!!! It felt so great to feel like I actually could connect to someone speaking another language!! Also, the Albanian Rep from Tirana for Self-Reliance came with him. They were so great. We are now to implement a program that can possibly help to get people jobs here in Pogradec.
I taught two piano lessons, ate cake for a birthday party, danced a traditional Albanian dance with everyone (left foot, right foot--grape vine left foot hop Hey !)
I also taught two English classes today.... Did I tell you how much I love my English students. I really do love them! I could just KISS them all! Oh I actually do Kiss them because that is the Albanian way to say Hello and Goodbye. I am Kissed about .....oh maybe 40 times a day! Hugs and Kisses to all who are reading!
We have somewhat of a handle on the smokey Kitchen.
Lorin and I took a run on the beach this morning and somehow that run just makes EVERYTHING better again. Off to Macedonia tomorrow morning early so got to go!
