It’s a Small World After All

It’s really fascinating how many times we end of making connections with people we meet in various places across Africa.  Here’s one more.  For the week we’re waiting for a plane to take us home to Gemena we’re staying at the MPH (Methodist-Presbyterian Hostel) in Kinshasa.  This facility used to house missionaries kids who were going to school in Kinshasa, but now has become a guest house.

Friday evening we met Rob Weingartner who is here working with some local churches and ministry partners.  He is from Nashville.  Over the course of conversation Cindy commented that her niece Morgan just moved to Nashville because her husband got a job playing keyboards with the group Steel Magnolia.  Rob responded, “I know the group.  My friend is their drummer.”  Rob had also seem them play on Jimmy Kimmel.  Later I’ve learned that Rob is good friends with the drummers parents.  How about that, over a meal at a guest house in Kinshasa we meet someone who is a friend of the drummer in the band our niece’s husband plays in.  It’s truly a small world after all.

    Hi – My name is Tessy and my husband and I are planning to adopt from the DRC. We are possibly traveling in Nov. I was wondering if you could e-mail me at fullertessy(at) with more information on the MPH. We are looking for lodging for a 2 week stay. I would appreciate any information you could give me. Thanks 🙂
