The Desert

Even though we had only been here about 3 weeks, it was already time to get away from the “big city life.” When you have an Aussie, a Kansas farm girl, and an Arkansan who want to be living in the bush thrust into a town of millions, it can be a bit overwhelming. We took advantage of a recommendation to see some sights in the desert and joined with some classmates and went camping.

Not only did we learn some history, see some beautiful places (the pictures still don’t do the area justice), it was a blessing to get to be out in nature and be encouraged in the Lord and His creation.

“The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.” ~Psalm 19:1


Valley of Wonders (6)

Does this remind anyone else of the end of Land Before Time?


White Desert (49)


I know many may want more exciting updates, but my life isn’t too exciting right now. I go to Arabic classes, practice Arabic, read Arabic, practice Arabic flash cards, buy groceries speaking Arabic, practice Arabic with my Sudanese language helper, talk to neighbors in Arabic, etc. in Arabic. Lots of Arabic basically.
