Back from Savannah

We were in Savannah over the weekend. What a beautiful place, such wonderful people. Hubby was ministering in a mostly Spanish-speaking congregation which is always fun and a little nerve racking, since he speaks no Spanish, and I understand quite a bit but am too slow to translate for him. Also, my Oklahoma/Texas drawl does something to the Spanish! So I listen in English and Spanish and try to make sure he uses terms that are easily translated...then try to make sure that the Spanish translation gives the "flavor" of what he said. I am exhausted at the end of the meetings. It's hard enough for me to keep up in English, much less in two languages. He had good translators and the people seemed to receive his teaching well. We hope to go back another time to visit and minister.

Saturday night we went downtown to do a little sightseeing and have dinner. It was so amazing down by the Savannah River. Cobblestone streets which I guess have been there since the town was settled. The place was hopping with tourists and natives alike. One of the sights we beheld were a bunch of college age (looked like to me) young men and women who were dressed in antebellum costumes. Very appropriate on the historic streets! Unfortunately we didn't get to see much more of the town on our trip this time...next time I want to see some of the famous squares that are just a little ways off the river.
