Sorry I did not blog last night. To fill you in on yesterday, we won our game against Tarsus yesterday 82-73. It was a close game throughout, but we came out on top. It is nice to be able to start out the season 1-0 :) I am proud of how our team played...everyone is in it together...such a blast to play with them and be a part of the team.
Above is a picture of the scoreboard after the game. I was waiting around for Shanna after the game, and so I decided to snap a quick pic. It was so great being able to meet up with Shanna again. We actually came back to Adana and hung out here. We had a great time of fellowship. I introduced her to tavuk doner and of course I had to have her try the banana milk (both were big hits).
Today we started off the morning by going to Starbucks. Shanna doesn't have one in Tarsus, so it was a treat for her. She got some coffee, while I got chai tea that was AMAZING!! After a pit stop at Starbucks, we walked to meet up with one of my friends to go to church. Shanna and I met some new people today that want to have us over to their house. It would be sweet if Shanna and I played on the same team, but we are only a 30 minute train ride apart so you can't beat that.
After church, Shanna and I took a bus that dropped us off near the train station. Once we got to the train station, I got Shanna squared away with her train ticket, and she was headed back to Tarsus.
I wanted to share with you some notes from today's church service here:
We sang the song below to finish the service and how fitting!!
Verse of the day:
I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. I plan on enjoying the rest of my day off, and then tomorrow starts another week of practice :).
May we find ourselves saying this week "Blessed be the name of the Lord"!
P.S. I added a copy of our tentative game schedule to my "Home" page. I also updated the websites where you can access Turkish League and Team information.
