Karen's Birthday

On June 20th Karen celebrated her birthday. Being a missionary means that you often miss out on sharing things with your natural family. This can be difficult at times, however, being a missionary also means sharing with a whole new family. On Karen's birthday we had 15 of our friends over for dinner together. Karen received flowers, cards and gifts.

On the following day in the church service Karen was one of several people who were called up front to receive a birthday blessing. Later that afternoon we went to the Homeless Social Center operated by Cornerstone Church. There we shared in a birthday celebration for one of the leaders, our friend Volodya.
