Vocab Quiz Tomorrow
Here is what I have and will be doing since last Monday to August 19th; learning Hebrew. The top word is pronounced "boker" and means morning. The bottom word is pronounced "mitsvah" and means command, commandment (think: bar mitzvah). Kim and I have definitely settled in and are becoming more and more familiar with how to get around these parts. We went for an adventure on Friday afternoon to find a beach. The first one we went to wanted $15 for parking so we decided to continue on to one further down the road that was free. The beach was packed and the water was as cold as Lake Superior, which for those of you who do not know that means it is freezing. But, Kim had a good time anyways and the sun did feel good on my white, white skin. Friday evening we saw "Bewitched" and, while Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell were terrific, the movie left much to be desired. Many storylines were left dangling in the wind, which is odd considering the movie is only 90 minutes long you would think they could have added some minutes to do a better job telling the story. We continued our Church hopping this Sunday and visited an Evangelical Free church about 45 minutes from our apartment. First person we met was the pastor's wife who introduced us to all the other ministers of the church and had us sit with her in the very front row. [When was the last time you saw a visitor in the front row at your church? Unheard of!] Very friendly church, made us feel right at home, sot hey are a definite contender, but we still have 6 or 7 more to check out, so we shall see. If you are reading this sentence, take a minute to post a comment for this blog; the more posts we receive the more we are encouraged to update our blog with greater frequency. Have a great day!
