Tomorrow, at 9:30 a.m. we are leaving Senegal. It is sad in many ways. Once more, we have to say goodbye to our friends and head to a new country to begin again. I think about my friend, ‘Boaz’, who also happens to be our landlord. He has been so helpful all along. Even yesterday, he took me all over the city to help me buy another suitcase and a bag for our video camera. There are also the two Chinese friends I made while tutoring them in English at the Chinese embassy. One Sunday they invited us to lunch at a Chinese restaurant. We had fun sampling ‘Senegalese’ Chinese food. There are also the friends I made at the university. Perhaps those I will miss the most, however, are our fellow workers here. They have been like a family to us. We spent holiday meals together, Monday night football (recorded via satellite and watched on Tuesday night), trips to the beach, and so much more. This year is filled with happy memories. Through it all, so many people have stood behind us in prayer, encouragement, and support. Thank you all for all you have done for us! May God reward you for what you have done in ways we cannot. His reward is the best of all.
