So sorry we haven't been able to update too much this week - time is flying by with Lauren and Tre! We are having a blast together just talking, laughing, and doing ministry together. We have been able to show them the different ministries of Living Hope, and they are getting to jump in and love on some people here, too. They have been helping Casey teach in the high schools in the mornings and we are checking out the kids and teen clubs in the afternoon. It is always great to jump in with the kids there - they always have open arms and hearts for us! A special treat for me was taking Lauren with me to my HIV support group on Tuesday afternoon. We shared a beautiful time together as the group opened up their hearts and loved and supported one another. Once again I am reminded of the privilege I have to know these people deeply and love them. They loved meeting Lauren and even had some time with Tre and Casey at the end. What a gift! We have also been doing some exploring of Cape Town in many ways. We have 'bouldered' rocks at Noordhoek Beach, climbed Lion's Head (this CRAZY mountain), gone boogie boarding in the Indian Ocean (ask Tre), and eating enough Billtong for an entire city! I can't express in words how special it is to share this experience with my sister and brother. They are amazing, gracious, and humble, and I love them so much!! Thanks for all your support and prayers this week - more updates and pics to come - PROMISE!
