30-Jul-2011: Today we met with Peter, Petra, Zoë, Joëlle, Quinn, Eco and Gusta for a BBQ dinner. Peter and Petra provided the ingredients while we brought the mobile bbq.
Today we visited Grandpa (Ton’s father), who turned 79 today.
Marcel and Evelien visited us today.
Today Mateus and Cerise picked up our 4 white chairs from the dining table. On Tuesday we will receive our new furniture, see pictures below. The new pieces of furniture were ordered in March. And … Danique was helping Sjoukje in the kitchen … they were baking fresh mushroom cookies (the healthy kind). She was all dressed up like a pastry chef.

10-Jul-2010 14.00-15.00: Sjoukje’s brother Anne-Pier said farewell to his community at the Dutch Reformed Church in Gendt as a preacher. We joined his last service at the “Fairtrade” church. When the service was over there was a farewell reception in the center (outdoor) section of the building (see picture below). Recently Anne-Pier started a new job as a spiritual consultant for an institute for disabled people, which was the reason to leave his job in Gendt.
