We saw lots of people today in providential encounters! It was really cool. This morning we ran into a RR dad at breakfast (well, they are staying in the same complex as us, but it was still cool). Then we spent the afternoon with a RR mom and her adorable 5 year old daughter and had a really nice time. Then this evening we went outside so Joel could call the missionary of the local church that we'd like to visit (we were trying to find out where and when the church met for tomorrow). When Joel told him where we were standing, he said they were a hundred yards away! They were right up the street from us out for a walk after dinner. We met with them and found out that the church building is just a block away. Then when Joel and I sat down for dinner, Oles, the young man at the train station walked in (did I tell about him in another post? If not, I'll do it tomorrow)! Joel called his name and he came and chatted with us for a minute then left. We have no idea why he was in there. This is no small town but we seem to know quite a few people already ;-) God has been so kind to us in so many ways and we are so very thankful! Are we allowed to have this much fun and enjoy our adoption journey this much?
We got to Skype with the boys this evening and of course it was so wonderful to see them. Ben showed us some cool rocks that he found, Sam showed us a family picture he drew (including Darya), and Nate showed us a sword he made and we heard about the "experiments" they've been making with Grandpa (mixing all kinds of odds and ends from outside). Tonight they're going to an Angels baseball game and we know they are going to have a blast. I just wish we could teleport and be with them :-)
