A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity (Proverbs 17:17)

There is absolutely no doubt we have experienced the weight of this verse while we have been here. Friends from family, church, work, and other areas of life have come along side us to provide encouragement. I would like to focus on a special friendship during this post. Lily and her cousin Charlie are very close friends. Lily has needed a good friend during this time, and Charlie, as well as her other cousins, have been great. Yesterday, Charlie came to visit so we decided to take a trip to the zoo. We all packed up around 12:00 pm (Lily, Charlie, and uncle daddy [Louis]) and took off. We grabbed 3 maps and charted a 6 hour course that would cover almost every square inch of the zoo. I think I enjoyed the day as much as the girls did. After we arrived back at Lebonheur we ended the day with a special supper in the cafeteria. This was just the kind of day Lily needed, and we are so thankful for her cousin and good friend, Charlie.

Here is a short slide show of our day

    If not for David, I would not have seen this beautiful slide of Lily, Charlie and yes even Louis way over here in Egypt.

    Thank you precious David for making this possible.

    Love, Josie
