Just to state the obvious, soccer is HUGE here! While Germany put up a good fight last night, they did indeed loose to Spain. However they did make it to 3/4th place which is still pretty neat!
That said, I am on my way out in a bit to purchase Germany shirts. They are on sale right now, and they will go away never to be seen again before I leave. Germany is not big on national pride, it is still kind of embarrassing for some of them, so they dont fly flags or wear shirts that have the littler german flag on it. Not even striped socks or ties with the colors... which may seem odd... but it makes sense. Crazy crazy. So, im going to get the germany stuff before it is gone.
In other news, everyone and their mom is gone. Morgan and I are here alone, together :). She is staying at the sullivans and I am here. The Rhodes get back next week, and then Karen the week after.
Yesterday I met with #2 of the 3 new LST contacts. He wasn't to excited about the BIble aspect of what we do, but he was very interested in practicing english, so maybe he will come to some of our english activities!
Things are starting to pick up again, readers on and off throughout the week! Morgan and I are going to Gisela's today for coffee which is always exciting!
Sven and I had a conversation last night about when to give up- when there is no more home. While we were watching the game of course... I like to think there is always hope. There is always a chance. Every little bit you can do, it helps! It makes a little difference for that one person. So, no matter the size, if we see a need, we fill a need.
Be good and do good!
