Inviting Friends To Small Group
The Card Group...
Our small group welcomed special visitors from Dubai this week. It was the last night of Norooz (the Persian New Year) and Ali and Mina's extended family spent the evening with us feasting on burgers in our backyard.
The kids played games, rode the zip line, and hunted for Easter eggs. Chocolate is truly the international language.
The adults talked non stop.
We were delighted to hear that Californians are much friendlier those they encountered in other states. We were encouraged to hear gratitude expressed for the way we have adopted Ali and Mina into our church family. We swapped parenting tips, learned more about the traditional foods served for Norooz, and talked about camping and hummingbirds. What is it about balmy California evenings with good friends and good food?
Our new friends head for home on Sunday but are planning to come back and go camping with us next summer.
