First Days at Home


After two days of reunion in Salatiga, we had to say goodbye to the SALTers who were flying back to USA. On Saturday, July 19, we drove the SALTers to Semarang airport. Saying goodbye again…

From the airport, an MCC staff drove me to my sister’s house which i called home…

I was so tired and sleepy but happy to meet my mom, EVENTUALLY… 😀 and first thing first, my first meal at home…

On Sunday, i didn’t make it to the church in the morning. I was still in jetlag. Then in the afternoon I and my family went to my father’s grave in the cemetery.

The other day I visited the school where I worked before I went IVEP. Oh, we were all happy to meet again. Those are the students I taught in the 3rd grade, but now they are already in the 5th grade. They are getting bigger and taller. They all still remember me. How wonderful!

last Tuesday, I went to the airport to say goodbye to the YAMENers from Simbabwe who were flying home. I think this was my last goodbye for now. I am getting tired of saying goodbye, it’s better just to say see you again… some time….somewhere….whenever and whereever it is….. just believe!

My NEW BOYFRIEND! his name is Ntutuko Ndlove. He is a great man!

Ha..ha..ha…JUST JOKING! He is also a YAMENer from Simbabwe to Indonesia. We were joking to be a couple, but actually he already has a fiancee in his home and they are getting married in April 2009. I am happy for him. It is so wonderful to have connection with people around the world. We are all good friends in these program 🙂

Me?  NO boyfriend yet….. GOD has the perfect time for me, just believe! Everything has its own time! 🙂
