So I haven’t written in a while but things have been super busy and super good. So Monday I realize my team is coming on Wednesday, not Friday like I thought so suddenly I had a lot to do! A LOT!!! The day the team was coming I came home with a mattress on a motorcycle, bread, fruit! It was awesome, too bad no one could take a picture, but I did take one of Michael with the stuff when we stopped. I really was praying I wouldn’t fall off the motorcycle. It’s easier to sit three people on it than to put a mattress there. I was so happy to see Haley and Joey. The last day the stove, washing machine and fans came in. All my hard work cleaning was ruined. I was go go go and was just stressed about them coming, but just hugging them when they came was enough to let go of all the stress. Hehe! When they arrived the sheets were still wet and not even put on, the boxes were all over the house, there was a puddle from the washing machine not getting installed properly and the hot water heater wasn’t in. But it’s Haley. Hehe! So I didn’t have to worry, I knew she would understand :)
We stayed up super late, but praise God the sheets were almost dry when we slept in them :) The mattress was more comfortable than I thought it would be, but my pillows are way too soft :) I went to school totally exhausted and barely made it through class. My poor student was like, “You are really tired today.” I bought some stuff coming back and was worried because they had nothing to eat in the house and figured they must be starving, but instead they were on their hands and knees cleaning the house!!!
We went out to eat and then I left them there while Michael and I went shopping for fruits and vegetables in this really cool market. While I was walking I saw a long snake like fish jump out of a dry basket and start squirming on the ground. It was quite interesting. I had left my phone with Haley or else I would have totally taken a picture. I loved the prices. One lady tried to talk fake English with me. We got home just in time for them to go to English class :)
I love having the break! But it lasted a day and then I was there yesterday teaching :) It was supposed to be first aid, but it ended up being a real lesson and then an intro of Haley. I sent Haley and Joey to an outreach to the guys who frequent women and came home and visited the rheas. They were so happy to see me and so was I. It felt like ages since I had seen them, but really it was only 2 days. :) I doctored a burned friend, chatted and then watched a movie, went home and unpacked and just fell asleep when they came home.
My house lock has stopped working so this morning I got it fixed, locked myself out of my room (all I had to do was pull the door closer to me and I could have unlocked it J). But because I was stuck outside I made lunch for tomorrow. A real disasterJ. The good thing was that I was so hot the cold shower felt warm :) Actually I loved my day. It’s 7:30 and I think I will go to sleep. I so need the rest and it’s perfect, I will start the week out right now! :) so I just came over to the rheas and Catherine is so sweet. She’s still a vegetarian and when we were both hungry we both simultaneously decided on nutella sandwiches but there didn’t look like there was going to be enough and she insisted on making me a toast first. There ended up being enough for even Monichea but wow, what amazingly sweet kids. I am so blessed to have them in my life.
God bless you all! I just love how everything works out so perfectly. Monday things will get busy and tomorrow is the bible study.
