Ramadan just started yesterday. Ramadan is the month were Muslims fast during the day. Usually when I think of fasting I think about just not eating food, but when Muslims fast during Ramadan they do not eat or drink during the day. Some don't even swallow their spit. A lot of the Christians will also fast for the first week to show respect to their Muslim neighbors. They also avoid eating or drinking in public during the day. Also most restaurants put up curtains or some sort of barrier so people can not see into them.

Trip to Salatiga

Recently I went back to Salatiga for the weekend. It was nice to see Mary Grace again and also other friends of mine that live there. I rode the bus there which took longer then usual. Usually it takes about 10 hours but on the way there it took 12 and on the way back 13. I took the night bus so I slept through a good part of it. Right now I am back in Jakarta. I am still trying to find a church to go to here. Thanks for your prayers and support.
