My new friend Katie
I met Katie at Burger King with Roger on tuesday night while we were waiting to meet up with a friend of ours. We asked her to take our picture (always a great conversation starter) and she spoke English so we joined her for a little bit. We ended up exchanging numbers and then on thursday she called me! I was pleasantly surprised. So I met up with her that night and we went to a little cafe and got to know eachother a little better. She is actually from a part of Turkey that speaks a different language called Kilbis (I think thats how you spell it) but has lived in Istanbul for 6 years. She is 19 years old and studying psychology in university. She loves America and watches MTV alot! Her favorite show is Punked! haha. We had a great time, and today we went shopping together. I am so thankful that God is bringing new friends into my life here that I can share with. Its really humbling. So please pray for Katie!
