Sister Georgina

Sister Georgina is so sweet. After church on Sunday, she invited several of us out to her house, in Mifkova, for a little get together later that afternoon. She is from Ireland with the order of the Infant Jesus Sisters.

What an international group she hosted! The countries represented were Ireland, Czech Republic, Poland, Indonesia, Romania, Cameroon, Bulgaria, the Philippines and the U.S. Go figure that about a third work for IBM. The food was great and so was the company.

Mifkova is outside of Brno...about 20 minutes from the city center on tram #8. I'll have to go back sometime and take pictures of the village. It was very peaceful. Some folks said that there is also a lake near by.
Over the past week the weather has started getting cooler. So the fire felt great. I'm not really looking forward to months and months of cold. But who knows? Maybe it won't be so bad.
Little Christian is the man! He's 21 months old and already dealing with 3 languages - Czech, Bulgarian and Polish. I doubt if my Czech will ever be as good a two year old's.

  1. I didn't know there was an order devoted to the Infant Jesus. I bet they're excited the Pope is coming.
