GO BOTAS :)
This morning I was listening to a message on Generosity from Clayton King, and it was really good! It is funny how the Lord works, because Jo and I decided to go to Starbucks on our way to the gym. We had a team meeting before the game, so we were going to be getting there kind of early. I wasn't planning on getting anything, but then decided to get a chai tea. Well, the guy says, "Your drinks are free". Jo then said, "WHY?" and the guy said, "Just because". I couldn't help but smile to myself. Here is a guy who is being generous by giving us free drinks from Starbucks...thank you Lord :)
Then, on our walk we had a bus stop to let Jo and I cross the crosswalk. Now, you may not think it to be a big deal to let pedestrians cross, but over here in Turkey drivers are all business and do not stop when people are waiting to cross. In my mind I was like, "Wow, this is AMAZING". I then told Jo, this is going to be a great day! First we get free drinks from Starbucks, then we are allowed to walk across the street AFTER someone stops for us to cross :). GOD SURE IS GOOD!!
We get to the gym and the meeting goes well. We then play and we WIN!! One of my teammates had to go to the hospital and get eight stitches in her head...crazy. I will say the game was quite physical! We also had a girl hurt her quad, a girl sprain her ankle, and a girl get kneed in the chest. I got hit a few times in the face, but all is well. After one of the hits, I actually got a headache so I decided to take some medicine for it. They gave me something to dissolve under my tongue, and then a tablet to swallow. Whatever the concoction was, it worked :)
After the game I went out to eat with some people from my church. During the game at some point I looked up and saw about 10 people from church...WOW!! Thank you so much you all for coming :). Six of the people stayed and we ate at a Chinese restaurant for supper...yes I did say a Chinese restaurant in Turkey! I ordered chicken with pineapple and almonds...delicious. It was such a great time of food, fun, and fellowship :)
Tonight we set our clocks back an hour! So for a week I will only be 6 hours ahead of the East Coast.
I am looking forward to the privilege of being able to go to church tomorrow :) I hope you all are able to find a place to worship the LORD!!
Be blessed and have a wonderful rest of your weekend :)
