In the midst of all of that, God has given us 2 (American) families in Lima - the Chapmans and the Harders- that we love to hang out with. What are the chances that the only Americans we know in Lima also happen to be such interesting, fun, encouraging people? Last night as we were coming home from a delicious dinner at the Chapmans, I felt overwhelmed by the grace of God that He would put these people in our life.
In this coming week (our last in seminary and in Lima), we're planning to get together with both families. So much fun in one week? It seems to good to be true. Isn't that like God-- giving me more than I could ask or imagine, knowing my needs better than I do, and providing for them in surprising and wonderful ways.
