So we are finally going back to site. It has been nice to be in the city with running water and a toilet seat, but we are feeling like we need to get back and stay at site for a while.
I added a "wish list" of sorts off to the side of the blog. None of it is stuff we need but sometimes mustard or mayo would be good on a piece of bread with an egg and tomato.
Uncle Dan asked about Christmas here and what was the same and what was different. Unfortunately, because we were in the city for the holiday we can't be out after dark--thus no Christmas Eve service. On Sunday we were going to try a church in town that we sawa flyers for but walked to where we thought it was and there was not a building or a person in site. So, needless to say we really haven't been able to compare. Between being sick the first week or two, and then on Med Hold we haven't had too much of a chance to integrate with the communities. It is actually very frustrating. But we are hoping that the coming months we'll be able to dive right in and get connected. I am guessing this will be the most frustrating part of the whole experience; getting connected, and actually finding a place to make a REAL difference.
Hope this finds all of you safe and happy. Probably will update in a month or two.
