When I was young, I learned a song about making new friends. "Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold" ~ We are so blessed to have friends - from different parts of the world.
Here are a few examples of special friendships in our lives. I went to an Indian themed party with some teachers, teacher's wives, and others who work at our school.
English Corner every Friday night with our Chinese friends, some we've known for several years.
Mark is explaining "cursive writing" in English.
Community work day - helping scrape and paint an arbor in our neighborhood last Monday. (spring break)
During the Ladies Retreat here in Tianjin in March, at a Thai restaurant with special friends.
