Jeremy asked if he could invite three of his friends for his birthday supper: Sumeyla, Ibrahim, and Moussa. We said sure and we'd make American food. So I made hamburger buns on Saturday, then Sunday night we made hamburgers and French fries (that means the potatoes had to be peeled, cut up, and deep fried). John helped me with the cooking. We also made a salad and a marble cake (white and chocolate swirled together in a marble pattern).
The boys came dressed in their most cool clothes and sunglasses. They loved all the food, especially the cake. That really surprised me because they often don't like sweets. I wanted to serve them Cokes, too, but there were none to be found in Tera that week.
After declaring that they were going to die of happiness because of the delicious food, they got out the Twister game. At first they all played, but then they became more competitive and played by twos. The winners of each group then played against each other. I think Jeremy won this particular round.
Pray for Jeremy as he relates to Ibrahim (in the white shirt). He isn't always easy to get along with, but it seems that he is beginning to be moved by Jeremy's Christian testimony. He even came to church with Jeremy last week.
