Anyone Thirsty?

One of the, uh, joys of living in a foreign land is figuring out the language.  As we are both ministering so much at the school, we have really appreciated the grocery delivery service.  You put your order in online and for a modest fee they bring it to your door.  As we do not have a vehicle, the fee (about $3.50) is cheaper than the taxi would cost, so it makes sense.

However, in my rush to get the order in last week, I inadvertently misordered.  Instead of ordering "24 bottles of water", I ordered "24 6 packs of water."

We now have enough water for the rest of the year.

I almost feel like Jesus when He said, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to me..."

(and yes, I know He was talking about Spiritual thirst).

Well, if anyone needs a drink, please do not hesitate to stop on by!

Great story and photo. I'm trying to make my way through the Netherlands right now (knowing absolutely no Dutch) so I can definitely relate!
