Changing topics! I have been cleaning the center/house as for two days ago. We were blessed with a free fridge and saved nearly $300, but it was a little moldly. So I have been cleaning it with a toothbrush and dish washing soap and it was going slow, but yesterday when I left my cleaning to go to see hurt knee of one of the girls, Mrs. Rhea gave me a spray that has so simplified the work! I think I should be able to finish today and it smells good! The first day I spent an hour cleaning the front. People have been throwing garbage into my mango tree pot and there are killer ants all over it. I got bit a ton of times but I have to say it was quite satisfying to clean out the area and pull out some of the weeds as well. Then I cleaned out the gate so that I can shut it easily. That too was full of sand and garbage. Rather gross since I didn’t have gloves, but the end product – beautiful :) I used my experience in India to figure out what broom I was going to buy. When comparison shopping, found one for less than 25 cents and got my work done! :) I love being here!!
The only drawback of moving is that I am really going to miss the girls. I feel like family. I came home yesterday and two of the girls jumped up, everyone paused the movie, they helped me get food and even repackaged it for me and were just so thrilled I was home. I felt sooo loved. Soon I’ll be in a totally empty house. I think I’ll have to visit often cause I think they are going to miss me as much as I am going to miss them :) They like me so much they even watched a horrible Indian movie with me just cause I didn’t want to watch cartoon network :)
Just a few prayer requests:
cheap washing machine
cheap curtains and rods
nets for the windows
Cheap furniture that is nice :)
Other news: the English lesson is going extremely well. I actually prepared for the Friday lesson but after I gave my student a tour of the center, she said she wanted a place like this for her school and started stating all her other desires and I started telling her all the stories of how I got here and how God worked everything out. I had meant to stop somewhere along the lesson time and actually go over homework and have her speak, but God had other plans. She was in tears and again stating how this was an answer to prayer! It was cool!! I love how God works!
Today I am checking out another church. :) I have been eating like the pig the last two days, just really hungry all the time, so it’ll be good to get on my bike and go to church J After church maybe I’ll get some cleaning in before my 3pm bible study! I just love God and am sooo excited and happy about all that He is doing. He really is more than enough to meet our every need and fulfill our every desire. J I JUST LOVE HIM!!!
God bless you all and may He draw you closer to Him and may you feel His great love for you always!!!!
