Week 4 Video Blog
A quick updateRead More >
Hello all! First we just want to thank you so much for following our blog. Week 4 was pretty great. We continue to see the government licensing process expedited, having what should take several weeks take a matter of days. Because of this quick progress, we have found more free time this week and have been taking the opportunity to enjoy ourselves, getting to know the locals better and also growing together as a team. After three weeks of Iraqi food (chicken and rice), we were ready for some American food! We had the joy of making a good southern meal for our Iraqi hosts just a few nights ago, and it turns out that fried chicken and mashed potatoes are a big hit - we’ve already served it twice! It was great fun, and we hope that this was just the first of many opportunities we will have to love and serve these people.
Thanks again everybody - our supporters mean so very much to us!
