The banquet on Sunday night went extremely well. They had a tent set up and decorated like a wedding feast. We ate Bangladesh style (with our hands) and then had several special music pieces. The Loftis' did a special music package and then Rich spoke about the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. It made you long for heaven. I was able to get dressed up in a Sari and it was alot of fun, like getting ready for a wedding. When debating which one to wear the other ladies all said for me to wear the orange one because it fit my personality (feisty). It's always interesting the perception of people.

We left Malumghat around 6 a.m. on Monday to avoid heavy traffic. Nan Walters had to get back for play practice so we sent right to the guest house. We laid down and slept until noon, had lunch and then slept again until 4. We are just starting to adjust to the time change and then we will go home and do it all over again.

At 4 p.m. Dave Walters picked us up and we did alittle shopping and then had dinner with Dave, Nan and Grace Walters. It's so good to be with them and hear about their ministries. They seem to be very happy here in Chittagong and enjoying their part in the program here.

Even with our long nap yesterday, we slept well and are getting ready for the day today. Dave Walters will pick us up and show us his clinic ministry. He is anxious for us to meet his colleagues. Rich plans to get his traditional overseas haircut and then we will meet Nan and Grace for supper.

Tomorrow we leave early for the airport so this will probably be the last entry.

See you soon.
