Chai Break


I like this photo Jesse took of Gabby and Carly drinking tea with Heather in a little hoteli (food joint) out in Maasai.

Gabby and Carly were young girls when we first moved to Portugal in 2000 (and we've actually known Carly since she was one) but now they are grown and here with us in Tanzania on a summer team. It feels really precious to me to have our first team be mostly made of kids we've known since they were small.

Next week the team will be taking a few Swahili lessons and helping out at an orphanage in town. What a nice thing to have them here and to host their African experience :-)

That picture makes me happy. I think Heather looks like she's becoming a woman.

Jenelle, I thought the same thing when I saw the picture. Yikes!

I think Heather looks older with her hair long, don't you?

Jenelle said...

yes, definitely.

Heather looks like she is deep in thought while drinking her tea.
She looks like a future Westmont student!

Maybe she will follow her brothers (and parents) there... or maybe she will blaze her own trail :-)
