I thank God for the opportunity to go and spend a few days in Senegal, visiting Max while he's in school at Dakar Academy (DA). We got to hang out a lot, played a little basketball, played some video games, met his friends. It was a nice few days. During the day (while Max was in school) I spent time with the other SIM missionaries in Dakar, especially Dan Porch, my boss.
We wrapped up the week with a fun day out with some of Max's friends: Adam, his roommate; Andrew, Nathan, Philip, and then me and Geoff (Nathan and Philip's Dad). We went gokarting (if you ever want to find out who is competitive, just go karting. I'm definitely more competitive than you'd guess! That is a lot of fun... you can basically push the karts to the limit and never wipe out. We did have a couple minor bumps, but basically good driving. Followed by the best ice cream I've had in West Africa! Here are a few pics of the birthday boy and friends (taken by Geoff).
