New Driver today – so my hopes started out high. He’s is a little bit better driver, but the manners of driving here are just different than anything I’ve ever experienced before.
The kid’s English is not as good as I thought it would be. When we told a Bible story today, we had to have an interpreter. They seem to like the scripture song – “Love, love, love the Lord. Love the Lord your God. Love him with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.” Â I really feel that if we can leave them with 3 scriptures by the end of the week, that would be the most impactful to them.
There was a little hot water in our shower today. Â Well, it still wasn’t a hot shower, it wasn’t even luke water, but it wasn’t freezing cold like yesterday. Â This is a smile for me today.
We were not sure when we got up this morning, that the beds would actually be ready by today. Â They were. Â When we arrived the beds had all been left on the lawn. Â We had to match up the numbers to find the top bunks that matched the bottom bunks. Â The mattress truck came about mid day. Â The truck with the sheet, blankets, and Bibles came while we finished unloading mattresses. Â This was very chaotic, but very exciting.
When we arrived yesterday the four team members from Indiana did not have luggage. Â Today they were notified that it was located. Â We are praying it arrives tomorrow.
I think tomorrow we are going to do some recreation, but plans are not really concrete for any day. Â I that’s is supposed to be good, but it feels a little out of sorts for me. Â We do have a plan, but we are not sure we will be able to use it. Here is the reality meaning of trust and flexibility.
