We have had some challenges since the children have returned from their villages but rules are in place and they are “coming around.” We were proud to see the older ones out Saturday morning doing their own laundry and hanging up on the additional clothes lines that were added this week for their use. A couple of them learned that you cannot put the reds with the whites especially if they are new clothes from the USA.
Please pray for these learners as they enter into a different environment. We pray they will become friends with the right people, be good Christian leaders, ask God for wisdom in decision making and be successful in their studies.
This week our power was out for almost 24 hours. Well this really wouldn’t be so bad except everything in the freezer starts to defrost and the water began to run across our floor. Then after about 6 hours we discovered that we had NO water because the power supply keeps the water pumping up from the river into the filters. So, no water to drink, to flush, to wash dishes, do laundry, all of the things that we use water for that we take for granted. What to do??
Well, the river is right here and the water keeps rising so let’s get water from the river. Of course, we would not drink it before it was boiled but we could not boil it because we did not have power.
Challenges? They make us stronger and remind us to rely on God because He will provide and He will give us wisdom and He will never leave us. Today, we have power and we enjoying the water and the coffee never tasted better (both because we had hot water and because our friend Patti sent us French Vanilla Creamer - THE BEST)!
Please pray for the rains all around the area to STOP. It will be a miracle if we do not have to evacuate with our 59 children as the river is rising right before our eyes! The road in and out of the village is difficult and will, in time, be impassable.
We Praise God for all of the Blessings and Challenges that He sends our way!
We are thankful to be in Africa and for your prayers, support, encouragement and LOVE!
This is NOT about us. It is about HIM!
Give God the Glory and Praise!!
