German, American, Norwegian, Chinese Pizza

We love being at such a crossroad of people and cultures.  Last night we had another pizza night.  Invitees included a partly-retired Norwegian-Danish couple who are international leaders in mission; a young German family who have recently moved to Hong Kong; a Chinese student who hopes to complete Ph.D. work in England.

I didn't have time to make the brownies I had planned on making for dessert (I got sidetracked cleaning some of the blankets of dust off of our ceiling fans... when even your visiting young adult sons mention the dust layers visible on the rim of the fans... you know it's time for some cleaning action before your company arrives ).

So there were no brownies, and much to my dismay, I discovered the three (count them three) cartons of ice cream in our freezer were all down to the last half-scoop or so of crystalized mess. (Those same young adult sons I mentioned have left their traces all over this house...)

Miraculously, our Hong Kong friend showed up with a box of Japanese "corn chocolate" which tastes much better than it sounds... kind of like gourmet chocolate rice krispie bars.  So that was just perfect for dessert.

(I probably would have burnt the brownies anyway)

Note: nobody in this photo is biologically related except the little blondes who are brother and sister.  But in Christ we are family.

 28-29In Christ's family there can be no division... That is, we are all in a common relationship with Jesus Christ. Also, since you are Christ's family, then you are Abraham's famous "descendant," heirs according to the covenant promises. -- Galatians 3:28-29

p.s. We even talked about starting a little Bible study cell group.  Who knows what might happen?
