My birthday!

Yesterday was my birthday! But I think most people knew that by now, because Baukje had collected a few square meters of emails in the morning, printed them out and pasted them up. I already knew she was up to something but I didn’t expect this… haha. Thank you everyone so much for the heartwarming messages (later also via Hyves and Skype). Some people had even been very creative with photos and even included a puzzle. That was still quite difficult… By the way, if you’re thinking: “oh no, I never thought of that!” Don’t feel bad, then I won’t have to if I forget a birthday 🙂

Gerard with all the congratulations!

To be honest, I was a bit dreading my birthday a few weeks ago. We had previously written that we invested too little in relationships, especially in the beginning. What do you do with your birthday?Kids in the pool Cory, someone from church found out that it was my birthday and included it in some announcements, so it was immediately known to everyone. We then invited a few more people with whom we get along well and they all came right away. In the end it was a lot of fun and because some of them have young children, the water level in the pool had dropped considerably after the visit… Well, now I could celebrate my birthday outside! There is a good chance that there will be more “African” birthdays… visit We are also busy with the project during the day and every now and then we do some preparations for Ethiopia. We just weighed our suitcases and it is still possible! Never thought that 20 kilos per person and some hand luggage would be enough to live on for so long. Of course we also use some things from Simon and Renskje, but we have discovered that you don’t need a lot to have a nice life, we never miss anything! Thank you all very much again for your congratulations! Great to have friends like that… I’ll just eat a piece of the chocolate letter that Heit and Mem had sent. By the way, did you know that these things have to be put in the refrigerator at a somewhat decent temperature because otherwise they become soft? 🙂
