A Few Firsts

This week I got to do a few things I had never done before.

1. I got to shoot a bow and arrow! Cherie (who is in my class) offered to teach a few of us girls how it’s done!

Then she trusted us enough to let us try! It was a blast!

2. I made tacos! Yup, for the first time.

3. At our small group get together on Wednesday, we had lunch together. And we got to taste this very strange fruit called a rambutan (thanks to Google here’s a picture!)

4. Some other girls and I got to visit with a staff couple from Britain…we made crepes for dinner (or for “tea” as they would say!)

(notice the successful flip with no spatula involved!)

We made dinner crepes, then dessert crepes! Yum!

I know my training here will hold a lot more firsts–some fun like this and some more serious.

But I will never have to do it alone!

So thankful that Jesus will always be by my side, even during the first-time-ever experiences that I’d rather not experience.

He is faithful, you guys!

Never once did we ever walk alone
Never once did You leave us on our own
You are faithful, God, You are faithful

Every step we are breathing in Your grace
Evermore we’ll be breathing out Your praise
You are faithful, God, You are faithful

~Never Once, Matt Redman~

Because He is with us,

Brooke
