      😱 we’ve missed this

      September 14, 2023 in Israel ⋅ 🌙 77 °F

      Today was full full day of catching up with amazing friends. We left the place we’re staying at (the missionary couples home) to go to see some of our friends in Bethel. The one couple we had plans to have lunch with them and catch up. She works in Hebrew sign language translation and the husband works in video for WHQ and is the overseer of translation. It was a nice time catching up for hours!
      Ice cream after finished it off nicely!

      Then we went across the hallway to another couples apt. She works in tech support in IT and the husband is on the branch committee over service dept. We had some beer and popcorn and chatted about them just graduating from Gilead and how it’s helped them in their assignment. After a couple hours here we were told that they organized a beach evening for us. So 50% of the bethel family (family of only 52-55 people) came to the beach to spend time together and to say hi after 4 years! It definitely made us miss service at the branch.

      Volleyball was fun with 25ish people. A few strangers wanted to join as we were laughing so loud and the volleyball looked like a great time. It’s a public beach so there is lots of people walking by and many enjoying the beautiful sunset. Just imagine the promenade in Miami and that amount of people…. We definitely stood out.

      After volleyball we went back to bethel Apts and had another meal and a couple more joined the party.

      We didn’t feel like driving back to Haifa from Tel Aviv (1.5 hours) so the English Circuit overseer (when we were here they were the Hebrew Circuit overseer) offered to put us up for the night. We spent some time with them catching up although we have never really been that close in the past. But, they have a cute cute bunny (yes, the COs here can have animals!).

      Now it’s sleep time. For another day tomorrow spending time with our friends in the center of Israel rather then up north where we used to live. Chat soon

      PS. We’re not posting names and photos of these couples as there could be some complications. But just know. Everyone of these dear brothers and sisters are amazing individuals!
