Today we visited the NAMESTAN office. That is, the North Africa, Middle East, ‘Stan Republics (Krygystan, Kazahkstan, Uzbekistan, etc.) regional office of Campus Crusade for Christ. The fact that this name sounds normal to me is evidence to how organizations develop their own internal language!
From there we stopped by another CCC office where our staff respond to people from all over the Middle East who write to it for information about Jesus Christ.
At the end of the day we took the metro to the Latin Quarter and found a cool dinner restaurant not far from Notre Dame. This is about as close as we got, and it was how the day went – in the presence of great things but engaged in the details of life.
