Here's a quick summary of part of our weekend.
Wednesday Evening: Attended youth group that has been in operation for 70 years. We didn't know anyone, met a couple of people who spoke limited English. The music was awesome, best youth group band we've ever heard. They sang a couple of songs in English, we were stoked. We'll be going back each Wednesday for the rest of the month.
Thursday: Slept in for the first time this month, loved it! Enjoyed a lazy morning. Decided to brave the intense wind and rain and travel to Antwerp. There was a crazy windstorm, the trains were delayed, we heard later at least 25 people died in Europe from the same storm, very sad.
James is hoping to have a statue constructed after him.

Friday: Took a train all the way to the the Northern coast, saw the coast and the North Sea. Visited the town of Brugge. It's so picturesque! We felt like we were in a storybook, or an extreme amusement park. Hung out with a family who has three young kids. They're raising money to move to Ethiopia and do medical ministry. You'll see a picture of the kids below, they're all totally enthralled with James.
