Hello everyone! Thank you for keeping up with us and reading our blogs!
Today was a good day for the Greece team. We had a day off so we decided to go to the Acropolis again and shop around for souvenirs. It was fun to go around to different shops and see what each one offered. After spending a few hours shopping for ourselves and our loved ones we decided to go to the Acropolis Museum that (lucky enough) happened to be free today! We found it very cool to see so many artifacts from the Acropolis. It was a very large building that allowed us to get another wonderful view of the Acropolis. We spent some time walking around and grabbing some dinner (I had some amazing pasta that I will probably be dreaming about). Then we headed to Mars Hill to watch the sunset over Athens. Unfortunately, it was a little cloudy today, but it was still a beautiful site.
A highlight for me today was when Taylor, Michale and I got to talking with a young lady doing missions work here who also goes to a Bible college. It was nice to sit and chat with her. We find that running into Americans in Greece is quite a breath of fresh air. It is always exciting for us to hear others ways that God is working. Tonight was yet another example of how God works globally. He is not just in small town Kansas. He is also in Greece and all over the world! Sometimes stepping out to get that bigger of God’s plan really sets our mission into perspective.
It is getting harder and harder to leave this place. I know this will be a place forever in my heart. Our next two weeks should be packed full of ministry and fun. I can’t wait!
