Our holiday on Ameland seems to be many weeks behind us. Because I am now uploading all the photos, we are thinking back to this wonderful week away. We really enjoyed it and found it was good to get away from it all. Don’t just worry about preparations and plans, but enjoy being here (in the Netherlands). When we were at Lauwersoog it was not always 100% work, but it was still a lot. And then you haven’t figured it out yet.
Two more weeks…
Last Monday we picked up the thread again. We have booked our plane tickets and have already sorted out many other things. From Thursday August 12 to FridaySeptember 10 we hope to stay in Ethiopia. We kept saying that we would be leaving in two weeks, but now that it is officially still ten days away, it is becoming concrete and a lot closer. Time to get everything in order and work on things that we need to find out in advance.
Last Sunday we had a meeting with our TFC team. It is good to come together and know that they, each in their own area, support us and help. This way everyone can use their talents and our team can only become stronger. Curious about who is on our team? In the right menu bar under the heading “our team” there is written about our TFC team, but also about all the other people who work with us.
Our plastic quest
Our search for plastic opportunities and machines continues! It is interesting to learn more about this and to know what different machines can do, what types of plastic they process and which type we should use. Our collection of plastic containers and cups is becoming increasingly extensive. Last Thursday we visited a plastic machine in Pingjum that is currently making square milk bottles of 0.5 and 1 liter. This machine processes a different type of plastic and also has a different working method. Because it is for sale and they are working with it today, Gerard is currently back there to see how it runs.
And so on…
The tickets have been booked, we can sleep at a Bible school nearby and we know what to find out there. We are just working on a car. Fortunately, Ethiopia is helping us with this. This makes everything a bit easier. Thank you Peter and Heleen! 🙂
When we have more news, we will let you know as soon as possible!
