Famagusta

I’m very behind in posts right now.  Katie’s (the Bethel intern) last couple of weeks here were quite busy.  I put some pictures of our trip to Famagusta on flickr.  The city is filled with ruins from it heyday from the end of the 12th century through the 16th century.  The city was sacked by the Ottomans in 1571.  That’s why the churches are either in ruins or have been converted into mosques.  You can read more about Famagusta here.

    Happy 4th of July!

    I’ve had a chance to spend some time with your blog, catching up on everything through stories and pictures — I’m so thankful you have a blog!

    There’s a special radio program this morning on NPR, music and interviews about the birth of rock and roll — the birth of rockabilly… you might want to check it out (lots of Johnny Cash, too)

    Let’s hope that by this time next year, the US has turned course to REALLY help the rest of the world be free.

    Hugs!!
