I went to sleep at 1am last night. I got so into reading my kindle and have so been wanting to read - just plain fiction for fun that I couldn't stop. It was a book one of my sister's had downloaded onto my kindle so I randomly started reading it but it ended up being a chrisitan mystery :) I love mysteries and the story was well done. I was enjoying the book so much I preferred it to watching a movie even!
So slept at 1am and got up at 6:30. But surprisingly I wasn't tired. I just finished breakfast when my khmer teacher arrived. She just finished and my landlord arrived. He had come by the day before stating he was thinking of buying a new fridge for me that his relative won on a lucky draw. Well last night he said he's been there in the afternoon and t hen at 8:30 he just arrived with my new refrigerator. Well I was sooo happy!! I had made plans to do errands with michael at 9 but messaged him to delay them as I got my refrigerator set up! I had just been thinking I wanted a new one that wasn't all broken up or at least a bigger one and wala it appeared. It is bigger and clean!!! and I can even make icecubes in it. It has more than enough refrigerator space and I love it! Now I have two refrigerators. This can only mean something is going to happen and i'll need separate refrigerators for something!! I am excited. And he also said that he is going to bring me 2 used air conditioners! YAY!!! Now the boys don't have to suffer when they come to help!! I can't wait till those come! I am sooo blessed to have such a sweet landlord! Praise God!
So after that we went to get the brakes fixed on my car. I was a little weary of a mechanic wanting to rip me off and when he thought my brakes were fine, even more,b ut I insisted on a change and they found more damage than anticipated. He fixed my engine light and the battery wire that kept causing things to die and even showed us where to get new front tires and all for 38 dollars!! It took 3 hours but he is so nice and sweet and his wife and daughter were great. I want to hire her daugther but I need to find something for her to do! Their baby son was the cutest!
I was late for my skype meeting but it went well and just had time to do my khmer homework before Michael came. We did all my errands including getting groceries and headed off to meet my friends from Every nation church. They had planned to come to my house but Michael wanted to take me out to a fancy dinner and so it made more sense for me to meet them since they live close to the school. I had such a great time with them! Oh my goodness. I didn't know what we were going tot alk about but God just did His thing and I ended up sharing a lot of stories of God's goodness, provision and faithfullness in Japan and as I was doing that I realized how much I missed that. What I love doing above all else is talking about God and how good He is! Ended the short meeting with them with matchmaking and was off with michale but before I left they all prayed for me. I really do miss that aspect. I have been so focussed on my projects I didn't even realize how much I miss the simple story telling and how much I learn and grow from that. I asked God for mroe of that while i am here and at dinner we had one of Michael's students join us.
rest to be continued. I am falling asleep
