what a bad blogger i am.

Wow. Spent a lot of time the past few days sitting in the hospital, about to do a lot more of that coming up. Thank goodness for the other volunteers who chauffer me and keep me sane!

I leave a month from tomorrow, which I can't believe. Now that I'm coming to the close of my time here I have to wonder, has God been glorified in what I've been doing here? Am I learning the things I was sent to learn, am I making the most of all my opportunities? Prayer for this last month will be appreciated, for sure.

Let me close this very brief update by saying firstly, the weather in this country is insane. It's still been cold, even though we're approaching summer, but all of a sudden it's been super hot in the mornings but then around 2 or 3 in the afternoon the clouds come rolling in and it rains and gets really cold again. Secondly, the kids made their Christmas lists and by far my two favorite requests were by Menzi, who requested the ability to fly, and from Musa, who asked for a sheep. Yes, a sheep. Although neither of those are going to be filled (hopefully, the last thing we need is another animal around here) they did provide a lot of entertainment for all of us.

33 days till Chickfila!!!

Don't tell me you're finally going to tell Musa "no" about something?? Or is Katie making you do it?? She said that NEVER happens without her intervention!!

As for the request to fly, I understand. Your Grandmother never got me that Superman suit I wanted either....

Love you!

Dad

Wow! A sheep and to fly. Maybe someone should get the kid a stuffed animal sheep...it would keep the place as calm as possible and satisfy the request...sort of!

I can't believe you return in a month. Wow! I can say that from your posts, I have no doubt that God has been glorified. You have shown those kiddos his love everyday. Can't wait to see you!

Love ya,
Claire

BTW, your former place of work denied me an interview. I figure, it's their loss. ;-)
