A Day Off!!!

While many people had a busy Black Friday looking for deals in America, our family decided that we needed a day of rest. Teaching Monday through Friday in a village setting means that on Saturdays we need to go to town to run all our errands. On Saturday evenings I meet with my village Bible study group and buy jewelry from the Buwundo Beads group.  So far this school year everyday that we have taken off has been for a GSF ministry function. Since David's birthday was on Friday, we decided that it would be good for our family to take the day off to celebrate and rest a bit. We found a great place to stay at a good price. It is called Hotel Paradise in Jinja. There is a pool, air conditioned rooms and a delicious breakfast! Here are the early birds at breakfast on Saturday. 

It was so good to take some time away for rest and refreshment! On Friday we went to some of David's favorite restaurants in town for lunch and dinner. Then we had coffee and a birthday dessert with some friends at an amazing, fairly new place in Jinja, called Java House. It tastes as good as it looks! 

I am so thankful that we were able to have a brief family getaway. Since we also ran our errands in town this morning we are heading home now to start some Christmas decorating as a family. This weekend was exactly what we needed! We thank God for providing this needed time of refreshment for our family!
