"For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God." (1 Corinthians 1:26-29)

I Lift My Eyes Up

We made it safely to Switzerland, the first stop on our long journey home. Aside from a tiring day and a few "close calls" the trip went pretty smoothly. It did help us appreciate all the little ways that the Lord takes care of us, even making things work out when we're on vacation!:0) We arrived in Switzerland around 9:30pm on Wednesday, November 18th and were greeted at the train station by our friends David and Aline Lampert, a young Swiss couple we got to know well when they spent a year serving alongside of us in Mahadaga.

Our Swiss hosts have spoiled us! Aside from the beautiful views, we've enjoyed some great meals, sight-seeing, great fellowship and lots and lots of chocolate and cheese! Thursday afternoon we walked around Montreux and got some pretty views of the lake and castle (Chateau Chillon). Friday we toured the castle in Gruyere and then the fromagerie (cheese factory). Saturday we took the kids to a nearby water park (indoor, of course)! And Sunday we had a great time getting to know the Lampert and Bussy families. In a couple of hours we board the train again to make a long trek south to Lourdes to visit Florence's cousin. Stay tuned!
