I have a new friend! I have truly been blessed to have met and developed friendships with so many godly people while here in the States, and Melissa is no exception! The Pidal family has just moved up to Newhall and lives now only a few apartment complexes down from us, and Andrew and her husband Gus carpool together since they both work at the bookstore. So Melissa just decided to call me up and have me over for lunch today!Melissa is in her final month of pregnancy and is a housewife extraordinaire! She also has a little boy, Cael, who is two and a real sweety-pie! I am affectionately known as "miss Biekie" by him... I really enjoyed spending the afternoon with her, picking her brain and being encouraged by her in certain areas that I perhaps had not been purposeful in while here in the States! The Pidal's are busy gathering support to go to Spain as missionaries, and are hoping to leave within the next year. How exciting, and I look forward to getting to know the family better!
