To continue to tell about the Farewell Party give to me by my colleagues, they had a game of Jeopardy where all the categories and information was about me. Categories included: Newbie, Omaha, Graduation, Armed Forces, Uh-Oh, Roads, Churches, etc. I had been asked a lot of questions recently but also someone contacted a former Missionary to ask for more information. She went to my personal blog to get other info. She may have also gone to the internet for all I know. The group was divided into three teams and did the full Jeopardy game, with me as final judge.
At the end of the farewell party my colleagues gave me a nice gift. One was a lovely Memory book that was full of letters from present and past Missionaries, along with photos that were past and present. A friend had worked very hard at gathering the information and making the book.
I also received a very generous Amazon.com gift certificate.
This week I have been mostly working in my house, sorting through papers, getting rid of the last stuff. I am still swamped with things to do and get rid of. My cleaning lady is cleaning cupboards as I empty them. I have invitations out for dinners every night. Tomorrow I will move into a guest house so I won't be sleeping here and cleaning can continue.
1. I have invitations out for evening meals so do not have to prepare them here, and so my refrigerator can get emptied out today.
2. I have a friend coming over to help me this afternoon and a few others tomorrow afternoon.
3. Only 5 days til I fly from here to the capital city.
Thanks for following my saga of leaving Africa, moving back to Omaha!
