It's been a looooong time since I've been in/seen the Atlantic Ocean! Some of the church people at Pompton Plains organised a day at The Shore to which we were invited. What a great time to catch up with people we thought we would never see again! Thanks so much for organising this! The girls LOVED the beach very much. They loved the waves, the sand, and the fellowship. Albert (although being one of the few men) enjoyed himself very much also. He also had a go on one of the boogie boards. I was surprised that he actually went for a swim in the ocean since he is not much of a swimmer at all. Thanks Aaron for being there, I'm sure that helped! (The Warner's did their summer internship at Pompton Plains this summer so we caught up briefly and met their new daughter for the first time! Abiel was born after we left for Canada).
On that Friday we left again for Chicago. We are grateful that we were able to catch for a few days with some of the people from our last internship. We were encouraged by the work the Lord is doing in Pompton Plains and also in our friends and graduate of Mid America, the Rossis. Unfortunately I don't have any photo's of our time with the Rossis, we were probably too busy having fun/catching up!
So here ends our summer internship. We enjoyed it but after being on the 'road' for 12 weeks we were ready to go home and relax. It had been a full/packed but extremely joyful 12 weeks. We had about two weeks before classes started again. We were ready to spend some family time! Our long drive home was uneventful, only stopping for gas. Thankful for cruise control! We arrived home before Albert's parents and the Bumas and so had some time to unpack before they arrived. So here starts the next instalment of blog posts. The visit of Albert's parents!
