aussie visitors

over the past week we have had the privilege of hosting some of our favorite people in the world.  First we had John and Glena Smith of Melbourne come and stay...they are life-long family friends of Geoff's family as well as co-workers in the founding of Communality over 10 years ago.  lot's of catching up about family and culture, mission and ministry, not to mention the very particular pleasure of face-to-face meandering conversation in the "australian language".  here's glena, geoff, and john at our favorite bakery, sunrise.


yesterday another dear friend and mentor arrived to stay with us - Mary Fisher.  Mary lives and works in Sydney.  here she is at our dining room table with Sherry and some other guests (from England and Columbus, OH).
