Although there have been so many things to write home about this semester (it’s true, ask my mother), some of the biggest blessings have been the most unexpected ones. I know Jordan will agree when I say that God has blessed us so richly with the gift of friendship with people here in Scotland! Everybody has been so welcoming and inclusive, and we really feel like we are part of the church family here in Airdrie. One of the ways we get to enjoy this gift of friendship is on Saturday trips with Beth. We get to enjoy God’s beautiful creation, good food, and scintillating conversations. We went to Crieff, Killin, Ben Lawers, Aberfeldy, Loch Tay (and some other places along the way).
