“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one” -C.S. Lewis

These two have become dear friends of ours (they are pictured in the middle row, wearing stripes). Part of our small group is pictured below at a goodbye dinner for Richard and Cherith.

They are both from Northern Ireland and measure things in stones and fortnights. The Irish vocabulary is so foreign to me. Richard has a much thicker Irish accent and doesn’t like that our American accents have rubbed off on Cherith. 🙂

Richard and Cherith have been in Hong Kong working with a company that has incredible vision and purpose. We will have to tell you about what they do the next time we are in the US.

Weird how transient this city is. I am still not used to the fact that good friends could only be living in the same country for a calendar year, but thankful God merged our lives together over the past year!
