I enjoyed a delightful weekend on an island in the region. I traveled with a friend whose fiancé is attending the university there, so he showed us around. We visited a fort and a museum where we learned about the history of the colonial era from our tour guides. We also walked around the perimeter of the island, which didn’t take more than a couple of hours. We worshiped on Sunday at our host’s church, and we shared fellowship and theological discussions over our meals at various restaurants over the weekend. Our journey each way involved hours in trucks and vans, in close quarters with many local people, which was a wonderful experience for me. I thank God for His protection and blessing on our weekend getaway.
