53 Years

On July 18th I celebrated my 53rd birthday. I was very humbled and honored to have so many people expressing their well-wishes.

One group of young people gave me a cake and a collage of pictures of them together with me and P. Another group invited us to lunch, and we were surprised with the number of people there, as well as the assortments of foods to sample. It was far more than just “Cake and Ice Cream” (like what is traditional in the USA).

The meal consisted of an assortment of pempek, fried fish in sweet and sour sauce, various vegetables, Chinese noodles, rice, chicken, fruit, and cakes.

We are very thankful for our many friends that do their best to make us feel betah (at home) here in Jambi!

The best thing at the party was having my wife at my side!
