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.” 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. Well, it still wasn’t a hot shower, it wasn’t even luke water, but it wasn’t freezing cold like yesterday. 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. They were. When we arrived the beds had all been left on the lawn. We had to match up the numbers to find the top bunks that matched the bottom bunks. The mattress truck came about mid day. The truck with the sheet, blankets, and Bibles came while we finished unloading mattresses. This was very chaotic, but very exciting.
When we arrived yesterday the four team members from Indiana did not have luggage. Today they were notified that it was located. 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. I that’s is supposed to be good, but it feels a little out of sorts for me. 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.
