Aras Leaves Snowy Jordan
January 31, 2008 by Jeremy
As I pulled up to the Shevet house, Aras, Hardi, and Dilshad dashed through the newly fallen snow with unrestraint. Once they were all piled in the van, their destination was the Al Aqsa mosque where each family spent some time in prayer. Then it was time for lunch before saying final goodbyes and heading for Jordan.
During the two hour drive, the boys practiced the many English words they learned during their stay. Aras and Hardi amazed me with their newfound skill of counting to 100 and pointing to parts of their face, saying “nose, mouth, ears”….. they now were showing off and we all began to laugh!
