|Yep! I saw an african elephant in the wild! Definately in my top 3.
|One of many 'unfinished projects' you see around. Stationary, because of lack of funds.
|I had the pleasure of assisting my good friend Charles Abonga in a Laparotomy on Tuesday.
|A group of cuties walking probably 1 or 2km's back home with these 15kg water containers on their
head. I picked one up, they're heavy! they'd do this a couple times a day.
After all that, I want to say thank you!
We so appreciate the prayers coming from Australia, and all around the world more than you can know- It makes such a difference knowing we have spiritual support in our time over here. There is definitely an obvious spiritual component to what we're doing. And the spiritual warfare is very real here. So thank you so much. Please continue praying for physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual strength for the whole team, as well as unity and success in our endeavours. Prayer makes the world go round! So thank you!
For me, I'm learning a lot. Being here is revealing more of what it is to be human, and what it is to be a christian. It's also revealing more of God's heart to me. To see that people here are thankful even though they are struggling. It's a big lesson to learn- that absence of 'stuff' is not absence of God's love, provision, or goodness. His love, provision and goodness is not measured in my state of wealth, it's in his character, and who He is, and who He's proven himself to be throughout the centuries. It poses the question, what am I thanking God for, and what would I thank Him for if all my material possessions and comforts were pulled away. It makes me see more into what Paul said to the Philippians: “ I've learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I'm just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I've found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the one who makes me who I am.”
